The city of Scottsdale has paid more than $328,000 over the last four years to settle acrimonious departures by three different city managers.
PHOENIX (AP)- The Arizona Republic reports that the City Council last week signed off on a $45,000 settlement with City Manager David Richert.
Richert abruptly resigned the previous week citing a lack of council support to remain an effective city manager. Richert's two predecessors, John Little and Jan Dolan, also parted ways similarly amid a growing discord with some elected officials at City Hall.
The severance packages for Little and Dolan were $123,000 and $160,000, respectively.
