Former Flagstaff City Manager Josh Copley will receive nearly $92,000 in severance pay, despite a provision in his contract that states if the city manager resigns voluntarily, he or she is not entitled to severance pay.
Copley’s severance agreement, which was accepted by the city council February 12, states Copley would continue to receive his regular salary until February 28. On or before February 28, once Copley has turned in all city property issued to him, like keys, credit cards, documents and any other equipment, he shall receive a lump sum of six months’ worth of his salary. According to Copley’s contract, he was making $183,600 per year.
