At first, City Manager John Avila said his pending departure was not a resignation. Now, he says it is.
Some City Council members have been wanting a clarification, wondering whether he is being fired or resigning.
Two weeks ago, Mayor Henry Sanchez told the City Council about Avila’s departure, but council members questioned whether it was a resignation or firing. The mayor didn’t directly answer.
Shortly after the council meeting, Avila said his departure wasn’t a resignation, but he wouldn’t elaborate.
