CHATTANOOGA (Times Free Press) - Paul Page, the city's director of general services, likely will resign this week in the fallout over allegations of sexual harassment made by two women employees.

"He's expressed a desire to me to get out of the shooting gallery, which I can understand," said Mayor Ron Littlefield, who hired Page in 2005 and later created a high-paying position for him.

Page has been under fire since early September, after a finding by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that Page had harassed an employee in October 2008 and that the city had retaliated against her after she filed a complaint. The letter stated that EEOC could go to court if the city didn't resolve the matter.

After a second woman filed a sexual harassment claim against Page in November 2008, he was disciplined with five unpaid days off.

Page has denied wrongdoing.
