Letter to the editor: Move on

It is time you all grow up and get in the “real world.”


It is time you all grow up and get in the “real world.”

When dealing with staff, things are not always what they seem. I myself have no idea why Mr. Stecyk  is no longer employed by the city but having dealt with similar situations in the past I will throw out a scenario. All hypothetical.

• The city was not happy with Mr. Stecyk’s performance. To outright fire him would probably lead to a long legal battle that neither side would want and which would cost taxpayers a lot of money

• Mr. Stecyk’s lawyer wants his client’s reputation to be intact.

• City council, not the mayor, on advice from their legal advisor work out a proposal that will sever Mr. Stecyk’s employment with the lowest possible cost to taxpayers.

• Mr. Stecyk, on advice from his lawyer agrees to the terms on the condition that the final documentation shows he resigned for personal reasons and all terms be confidential.

• The Mayor and council agree and the deal is done.

Editor, I am not sure this was the scenario but having been involved along with your father while in public service I know this has happened in the past. Is it the ideal situation? Probably not. But I believe it is in the best interest of the taxpaying public. Let’s hope council now gets on with business.
