City Manager Officially Out in Sherman

By  | 

Big changes were made by Sherman City Leaders in a matter of minutes as the city council formally accepted the resignation of city manager Scott Wall.

Council members accepted Wall's notice to resign his post and voted to name assistant city manager Giles Brown as interim replacement.

Council member John Markl says the resignation came after a negative review of Wall's performance. He also says a conflict of personalities led to Wall's decision.

"What you saw today was a direct effect of two years of turmoil and intimidation. Bill Magers has wanted Scott Wall gone, and today he succeeded in accomplishing that."

Mayor Bill Magers responded to the decision as well.

"I'll make a statement; I'm not going to answer any questions. I want to thank city manager for his service. I appreciate the professional and amicable way he and I were able to reach an agreement, and I want to wish him and his family the very best."

No comment from Wall concerning Monday's meeting, and no word as to when a permanent successor will be chosen.
