At the Feb. 22 commission workshop, Collegedale City Manager Ted Rogers announced his plans to retire on March 12.
Rogers has served as the Collegedale city manager for the last 15 years since 2006 when he was appointed by the Board of Commissioners.
At the Feb. 15 commission meeting, Commissioner Ethan White called for Rogers to be terminated, citing recent events involving the termination of Collegedale’s Parks and Recreation Director Traci Bennett-Hobek. White also expressed lack of communication and loss of trust with Rogers.
According to Rogers, his choice to resign was completely voluntary and done with the intention to retire.
“While I am indeed disappointed in the many untruthful allegations spoken against me, I choose, as I always have, to travel the high road where there is never a traffic jam,” Rogers said in a letter to Mayor Katie Lamb and the Board of Commissioners.“I am blinded by the brightness of my future endeavors and humbled by the outpouring of support I have received.”
