NOGALES, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The City Manager of Nogales is looking into claims of a "Toxic Harassment Work Environment."

It's a claim that was made by three women who are resigning from their duties working for the City of Nogales.

City Manager Frank Felix sent out a memo to the Nogales city council and the Mayor John Doyle. He told Tucson News Now, it was a memo that was supposed to be internal, but we were able to get our hands on the memo.

The resignations deal with the Human Resources Department or the Legal Department.

The memo says, Human Resources Director Julie Strzyzewski resigned after discovering that someone either Thursday night or early Friday morning went into her locked office. The manager tells me, he believes this happened when city hall was closed to the public.

The memo also stated the person removed official city binders that contained information about job descriptions, city ordinances, and organizational charts.

There are a total of 5 people that have mention a complaint about a toxic political confusing environment to the city manager. He's taking all of the complaints seriously and has sought help from the Arizona Municipal Risk Retention Pool to objectively look at the claims. Felix also says, he will be looking a video tapes to see who got into the HR director's office.
