In the Maple City, City Council members finally will be going on the record on the matter of terminating the City Manager, Art Sciorra.....After months of rather public denouncement of his performance, the matter will be put to a vote Monday by Mayor Bill Nelson, who recently was reelected to a fourth term.
Efforts to dismiss the manager for cause and thus avoid paying severance are proving divisive and legally expensive. It's not clear there is cause, but Council certainly has a right to make a change for whatever reason. In that case they are required by contract to compensate the departing manager.
I would think the votes are there or the Mayor wouldn't call the meeting, but events to the north have surprised and confounded all year.
