Hemet city council votes to terminate city manager


Last updated 3/20/2019 at 2:28pm

HEMET - In a 3-to-2 vote on Tuesday, March 19, the Hemet City Council agreed to a "termination without cause" agreement with former city manager Allen Parker. The agreement will be effective April 11, at which time he will be paid a $116,667 in severance pay and as well as accrued personal time.

Assistant City Manager Christopher Lopez will continue to serve as acting city manager.

Mayor Bonnie Wright, Councilwoman Linda Krupa, and Mayor Pro-Tem Russ Brown voted in favor of the agreement. Councilmembers Michael Perciful and Karlee Meter voted no.

The city council had previously placed Parker on paid administrative leave on March 12 after a closed session. Hemet City Attorney Eric Vail gave no reason for the council's action, and because the action taken was considered a personnel matter, the council is not required to give out any public information.

Parker was the city's 12th city manager since 2000. He was hired in August 2017 after resigning as San Bernardino's City Manager in December 2015.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
