Elrichboy over at elchuqueno.com wrote an illuminating post about changes in our city manager’s employment contract.
You can read it here.
He points out that the city manager’s original employment agreement (May 20, 2014) listed 14 reasons why the city manager could be fired for cause. City council can fire the city manager at any time but without good cause the city would have to pay the manager an extra year of pay.
When the contract was renewed on December 11, 2018 the list of specific causes shrank to seven.
Read elrichboy’s post to see all seven of them.
One that got my attention was:
Conscious misrepresentation of material facts to the Council or other City Officials in the conduct of the City’s business.
That explains a lot.
We deserve better
