SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) – Sebring council members voted to fire Village Manager Richard Giroux, effective Friday.
Police Chief Ray Harris will fill in temporarily.
Council decided after about 45 minutes in executive session.
Councilman Jim Cannell, who wrote a particularly scathing performance review, said he was happy Giroux is getting fired and it’s been a long time coming.
Giroux has worked for Sebring since 2013 and saw the village through its water crisis in 2016.
Editor’s note: A previous version of this story said Giroux has worked for Sebring since 2003. He has actually worked for the village since 2013. We regret the error.
