Fired and Rehired, Town Administrator Joan Goldberg Says It's Great to Be Back

Will the administrator's employment contract be made public? Did we pay severance when she was terminated in the first instance? If so, was the money returned, upon re-hire? These are questions designed to make sure that the board isn't wasting town resources. I am experienced with employment matters and severance is never a benefit to the employer. It is strictly an employee perk designed to compensate the employee for years of service and tie them over until they find a new position. Paying someone who is not working for the town does not benefit the town. In fact, the town may be paying severance at the same time it is paying a new administrator. And two years is very generous.

A six month severance clause remains in Goldberg's employment contract. The Town will not pay the severance payment now that they rehired Goldberg.

I hope that the plaintiffs now will stop their lawsuits and let the town board move ahead and not be distracted by the ugly behavior of certain factions in Town! Let us have a new beginning!!
