Whitehorse fires its city manager
The manager of the City of Whitehorse has been fired.
Stan Westby has been on suspended leave with pay from his job since the spring.
Mayor Dan Curtis says Westby will not receive severance pay.
"It's a personnel issue so we are not going to discuss the details of it, of course, but he was suspended in April — April 5 — and terminated yesterday as I suggested," he said.
Director of Infrastructure and Operations Brian Crist has been acting as city manager. He will continue in the job until the position is posted.
Westby was hired as city manager last summer from a similar position in Powell River, B.C.
