Jan Dolan, Menlo Park's city manager from 1990 to 2000, has been ousted from her post as city manager in Scottsdale, Arizona, according to news reports.
The Scottsdale City Council voted 7-0 March 18 to end Ms. Dolan's eight-year tenure, approving a severance agreement that will pay her more than $160,000.
A separation agreement is posted on Scottsdale city Web site.
Ms. Dolan declined to discuss her departure from Scottsdale with The Almanac, according to a Menlo Park employee who contacted Ms. Dolan on the Almanac's behalf.
The separation agreement between the city of Scottsdale and Ms. Dolan stresses that the agreement is "voluntary," but stories in two newspapers -- the Arizona Republic and the East Valley Tribune -- say Ms. Dolan lost support from a majority of Scottsdale council members, and her departure was inevitable.
