Williams council fires city manager after three months

By Emery Cowen | Arizona Daily Sun

The City of Williams will soon begin the search for its third city manager in two years after the council voted unanimously last week to terminate the contract of City Manager Bill Lee.

The decision came just three months after Lee started the job.

Mayor John Moore said the council decided Mr. Lee’s performance was not satisfactory but declined to provide any specific examples, only saying the issues were “minor.”

 “I just think that we basically had different directions to go. Mr. Lee seemed to tend to want to go a little different direction than the city,” Moore said.

A formal letter from the city’s lawyer categorized the termination as “without cause.”
