The Fernley City Council on Wednesday approved a separation agreement with city manager Patrick Marsh and accepted his resignation.
Marsh was fired Dec. 16 by new mayor Neal McIntyre. At the time, Marsh contested his firing and filed an appeal with the city council, which has the authority to overturn the firing with a supermajority of at least four votes.
However, at a special City Council meeting Wednesday afternoon, McIntyre said Marsh had dropped his appeal and accepted a separation agreement in exchange for his resignation. The council voted 5-0 to accept Marsh’s resignation and approve the agreement. Terms were not disclosed.
