Sherer out at city
Stan Sherer, South Lake Tahoe’s director of community services, has been let go from his position with the city, Interim City Manager Nancy Kerry said Tuesday.
Kerry declined to say why Sherer was relieved of the position, saying it was a personnel matter. Sherer was let go Monday, Kerry said.
Sherer could not be reached for comment Tuesday. A cell phone number used by Sherer was no longer working.
Sherer was hired by former City Manager Tony O’Rourke in December 2010 as director of parks and recreation. Sherer’s responsibilities expanded to include public works following a reorganization of the city last year.
Whether or not the city will rehire Sherer’s position is unknown. The matter will be discussed during upcoming budget discussions, Kerry said.
Although the numbers are preliminary, Kerry said she expects the city to face a budget deficit of more than $1 million this year.
At least for the time being, Sherer’s previous responsibilities will be assumed by existing staff, Kerry said.
