The Sammamish City Council voted 6-1 tonight to authorize the Mayor to enter into a separation agreement with City Manager Rick Rudometkin. The vote authorized a one year severance pay for Rudometkin, who started last May. Rudometkin’s contract entitled him to 9 months of severance pay. The Council voted to grant him additional three months in return for a “smooth transition” and release from litigation. Council Member Ramiro Valderrama objected to the additional three months severance.
No reason was given to the decision, likely because the decision was discussed in an executive session and is therefore confidential.
The Council unanimously voted to appoint Deputy City Manager, Chip Corder, to an acting City manager.
