The City of Whitehorse’s human resources manager, Barbara Walker, was fired late last week.
The city will not say why or precisely when Walker was fired, nor how she was notified.
Under the city’s management bylaw, Walker would be eligible to earn between $105,600 and $119,000 per year.
Her severance could range between three months to a full year’s pay depending on how long she had been working for the city. The city refused to say how long she had been employed or how much notice she received.
The firing comes in the wake of the sudden termination of previous city manager Christine Smith, who was dismissed without cause in March.
Smith herself was involved in the dismissal of several high-profile managers, including Robert Fendrick, who would later be elected to council.
