Sebring's Village manager terminated, council unanimously votes

Posted: Updated:
SEBRING, Ohio -

Sebring's Village Manager has now been fired. However, Village Officials are still not giving details on why exactly.

Following a 50 minute executive session, behind closed doors, to discuss "personnel," Sebring's council reconvened and voted unanimously to fire Village Manager Richard Giroux. But, the mayor and council then declined to comment or answer any further questions.

One councilman, Jim Cannell, who we've reported as being the most critical of Giroux during recent job evaluations would only say in his opinion Giroux "wasn't doing his job."

Giroux will officially be terminated following a week of paid administrative leave. 

According to the village charter, council can remove the manager at any time with or without cause.

21 News reported earlier this week that Giroux's most recent job evaluation by council placed him "below average."

For the time being, the Village's Police Chief Ray Harris will oversee the duties of village manager until a more permanent replacement can be made.
