(SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.) -- The head of San Francisco's Building Inspection Department is stepping down, but will be keeping her $206,000 annual salary, the San Francisco Gate reports.
Vivian Day, under pressure from the mayor's office, will be taking a new special assistant job within the department. Day will help her replacement transition into the job and oversee the installation of a computer system to track permits. She isn't publicly speaking about what happened, but confirmed her new responsibilities in an email sent to employees on Friday, the paper says.
Before taking a week of leave in May because of what she said was stress caused by efforts to get rid of her, Day sent an email to commission President Angus McCarthy and city human resources boss Micki Callahan, alleging that McCarthy and the mayor were trying to oust her for trying to clean out the inspection agency after a series of corruption probes, the paper says.
