The Sealy City Council recently rejected a separation proposal from deposed City Manager Lloyd Merrell.
Merrell, who resigned from his position then was placed on paid administrative leave in December, said he would finish the term of his contract that was set to expire on Feb. 1.
In their rejection, January fifth, the council also moved up the terminal end of Merrell’s contract and he was relieved of his duties as of this past Tuesday.
Mayor Carolyn Bilski confirmed the council unanimously rejected Merrell’s proposed terms of separation and accelerated his last day of employment to January fifth.
Warren Escovy, the city’s former planning and community development director, is serving as interim city manager.
