The circus around the firing and re-hiring of the city manager in Grand Forks looks like it’ll continue.
Some residents — including Donald Pharand — say they will be hitting the streets with a petition calling on the BC auditor-general to investigate what has gone on in-camera.
Doug Allin was fired late last year and received a $192,000 severance package but the public wasn’t told why.
He was then re-hired by the new council.
Pharand says Grand Forks can’t afford this and people are outraged by the lack of transparency.
The new council worked out a new negotiated settlement with Allin that adjusted the severance to about $115,000.
