Payson town attorney abruptly retires

Hector Figueroa

By Michele Nelson | Payson Roundup

Ahead of a hurriedly called Aug. 21 Payson Town Council executive session, Town Attorney Hector Figueroa submitted his decision to retire.

“We went into executive session to address a personnel issue, and when we arrived we discovered that Town Attorney Hector Figueroa has offered his decision to resign — to retire — and we regretfully accept that decision,” said Mayor Tom Morrissey to the audience.

Figueroa’s retirement at 71 comes a little over a week after the abrupt termination of Town Manager LaRon Garrett on a 4-3 council vote. That vote spurred the formation of a committee to recall Mayor Morrissey and the three council members who voted to fire Garrett.
