Jamsheed Mehta was asked to step from his position as Marana’s town manager and will be replaced temporarily by the town’s police chief.
The Marana Town Council voted Tuesday to authorize a separation agreement for Mehta, who has served as the town manager since February 2018.
It’s unclear at this time why Mehta was asked to leave the $200,000-a-year job. Terry Rozema, who has served as Marana police chief since 2011, will serve as the interim town manager.
“We shook hands, said we were friends, which we will continue to be,” Mayor Ed Honea said during the Town Council meeting. “I wish him the very best in his future.”
