EUGENE, Ore. – the Lane County Board of Commissioners officially terminated Liane Richardson as county administrator. Both sides came to an agreement that prevents either from suing the other.
Richardson’s termination was passed with little to no discussion, but Commissioner Jay Bozievich did take time to comment on the issue.
“I believe this agreement is in the best interests of the county. I wanted this to be a public vote. I didn’t want it to be buried on the consent calendar. That’s why I had it pulled. It also gave me the opportunity to address that one issue that’s come up recently about confidential information,” said Bozievich.
Richardson left the administrator post after an independent investigation revealed she took unauthorized payments.
Alicia Hays was then appointed as interim county administrator through March 2014.
