The Meridian City Administrator is on paid administrative leave amid an internal investigation. 

"It was brought to my attention that policies of the City of Meridian may have been violated by the Meridian City Administrator Marie Garland," Mayor Daniel Yguerabide said. "I have opened an internal investigation into these issues and informed Mrs. Garland of the complaints. I then placed her on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of my investigation."

Garland was previously investigated for misusing official information. She also testified in a hearing regarding a potential breach of the police evidence room.
