You the Readers demanded it! Now here's a copy of the letter that City Councilman Steve Leal sent to City Manager Mike Hein calling for his resignation.
It's quite brief, so you might find it sketchy on the details.
June 18, 2008
Over time, I have lost the comfort level that I need for a viable working relationship with a City Manager.
Because of the significance of the issues at stake in our community it leaves me no choice but to ask for your resignation. I am, of course, prepared to follow and honor all the terms in your contract, and specifically the terms that relate to severance.
If you agree to submit your resignation, please confirm by signing below.
If this is not agreeable to you I will place your contract and its termination on the next Mayor and Council agenda.
Councilmember, Ward v
