SOUTH BURLINGTON ó The South Burlington City Council has fired its city manager two weeks after putting him on administrative leave. The council said in a statement Tuesday that Sanford ďSandyĒ Millerís aggressive and confrontational style was among the reasons for his dismissal. The council made its decision Monday.
The Burlington Free Press reported that Millerís attorney, Scott Cameron, calls the councilís explanation ďdisappointing.Ē He said the council made Miller the scapegoat for its own poor decisions.
The councilors said they doubt Millerís commitment to carry out council decisions with which he disagrees.
Miller previously was city manager in Milton but left in 2009 after a falling out with the Select Board over contract negotiations.
He said Tuesday the council did not have just cause to dismiss him.MORE IN Vermont NewsIf this hasnít been the worst year ever for truth in politics, I canít think of what was. Full StoryMONTPELIER ó Artists from Windham County have been honored by Gov. Full Story
