Walbridge mayor seeks village manager s ouster

The Walbridge mayor plans to recommend to Village Council during a special meeting Monday that the village manager be removed from her post.

Mayor Dan Wilczynski said he will give council the reason for recommending that Karen Verbryke be removed in a closed-door executive session, but will not give a reason in the open meeting where council will vote on the matter.

She has been suspended with pay since Feb. 18.

The mayor said there is a clause in the ordinance that established the position in June, 2003, that states the person in the position can be removed without cause. The clause was put there at the recommendation of the village Solicitor Brian Ballenger.
