The Telegraph reports 54-year-old Regional Development Authority Director Gary Lee has asked for a hearing with Mayor Randy Toms.
Lee was arrested last month on the charges, which stem from an investigation into allegations of misconduct Lee made against a co-worker in June.
An indictment says he falsely reported forgery, prompted a notary public to issue a false certificate, lied to authorities and lied about signing an employment form consenting to random drug and alcohol screenings.
Mayor's office spokeswoman Mandy Stella says a hearing date hasn't been set yet. Lee's attorney, Preston Lee Haliburton, says the charges are based on a misunderstanding.
