Richmond City Auditor Umesh Dalal resigned after complaints of workplace bullying.
City council voted unanimously 9-0 to accept Dalal's resignation. Council met in a closed session on Monday, which is protocol when discussing personnel matters, to discuss Dalal's future.
Dalal made a name for himself by exposing government waste for well over a decade.
His resignation follows an investigation into his office and allegations of bullying, retaliatory behavior and other issues toward his staff.
However, council voted 6-3 to accept Dalal's severance package. The terms of his agreement were not made public.
