CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke's head of day-to-day operations is leaving after six months on the job, the Times Free Press has learned.

News of Andrew Kean's departure from City Hall comes days before the City Council is expected to consider spending $100,000 on a consulting firm to implement the city's budget, which formerly was Kean's job.

Kean, Berke's chief operating officer who created and wrote the budget that officials said would transform city government, will return to the private sector.

Councilman Larry Grohn questioned the move, which he says reflects poorly on the performance of the Berke administration.
