The Flagstaff City Council unanimously appointed Barbara Goodrich as acting city manager at a special meeting Monday morning after accepting former city manager Josh Copley’s resignation.
Goodrich served as deputy city manager since August 2015, where she oversaw management services, economic vitality, real estate, information technology, water services and community development, city spokeswoman Jessica Drum said in a press release.
Goodrich has worked for the city for 17 years, as budget director, finance director and management services director.
Copley turned in his letter of resignation Wednesday, and said his resignation was effective May 8 unless the city found a suitable replacement sooner. His resignation became effective Monday morning when it was accepted by the council.
In Copley’s resignation letter, he alleged “unprofessional and discourteous” treatment from two unnamed council members.
