CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) - Two more Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland officials have resigned following the resignation of the organization’s longtime executive director and operations director last month.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports (http://bit.ly/1aplqzS) in their resignation letters, Chris Conine and Shibu Joseph refer to former director Matt Carlson’s departure as a “dismissal.” And they express concern about the “unconventional and imprudent” way it was handled.

Habitat officials have implied that Carlson’s departure was connected to an audit performed earlier in the month.

Conine and Joseph, who were on the agency’s finance committee, say the audit results did not warrant Carlson’s dismissal. They say despite deficiencies in internal controls, the agency received an unqualified clean audit.

Conine is vice president for Lee University’s business and finance department and Joseph is a financial consultant.
