Albany -- It will be tomorrow before the Albany city manager announces whether he's firing the city's finance director.  

Shirley Smith has been suspended since August. She met with the city manager for three hours yesterday after he sent her a letter that she was being terminated.

City manager Alfred Lott says she's not running the department the way it should be run.   "My concerns are about the integrity of the organization, the ethics of the organization and looking out for my employees. That's important. That's paramount actually."  

Shirley Smith has worked for the city for 20 years. She is the second department head to be targeted by Lott since he took over a year ago.
