Port Arthur city council votes in favor of separation from city manager
After three hours of discussion behind closed doors, the Port Arthur city council has voted to enter into a separation agreement with city manager Floyd Johnson.
What that agreement entails remains to be seen.
In the next few days, the city manager and his attorney will draft their terms in this separation agreement.
The council will have to vote on whether to accept it.
That vote is scheduled for Monday, but what remains unclear is what led the council to this point.
City manager Floyd Johnson came to Port Arthur from Florida a year and a half ago.
In July, city council elected to extend Johnson's contract for another year.
He also received a 3 percent raise, but with that came quarterly milestones.
I spoke with mayor pro tem Bob Williamson yesterday. He said since July, there have been a number of meetings and discussions with Johnson surrounding goals and objectives.
Those meetings took place in public, during executive session and one-on-one meetings.
Williamson would not elaborate on what exactly was discussed during those meetings, citing personnel matters.
Despite those meetings, Johnson's attorney says tonight's vote came as a shock.
