Instead, Vaughn said she plans to serve as a full-time volunteer with the American Cancer Society and other nonprofits as a way to give back, following her “different health issues over the past year.”
Now the city manager, who is appointed by the mayor and council, may serve “for an indefinite term” and, if removed, “may receive only his salary until the effective date of removal,” according to the proposed charter.
The changes would set a term limit of four years for the city manager whose contract could be renewed by mutual agreement of the city council and the city manager for no more than 90 days.
If removed by the city “without cause,” the city manager will receive “a severance payment of salary and benefits” for those three additional months.
Upon removal “for cause,” the city manager would not receive any severance pay of salary or benefits.
