Camp Verde Marshal’s Office Marshal Nancy Gardner has been on administrative leave since Oct. 23. No information about what caused Town Manager Russ Martin to place Gardner on leave has been made public.
On Oct. 23, Martin said he expected the investigation into Gardner’s conduct, administered by an independent group, to take approximately two weeks. By Nov. 6, however, Martin had nothing more to add. Martin said he knew of the necessity of an investigation “since the few days at the end of the week prior” to placing Gardner on leave and moved to organize the independent group to conduct the investigation.
