The City Council accepted Eileen Stein's resignation after 11 years on the job.

 

The vote was 3 to 2 -- but those who voted to get rid of Stein refuse to comment on why.

 

Sisters City Councilor David Asson is one of the two councilors who voted in favor of keeping Stein.

 

"Yes, I'm upset.  Yes, it's silliness.  I'm a retired CPA., 76 years old and I've been through these kinds of things before, but there was always logic.  It's absolute ... It's going to hurt our little city.  These idiots and you can quote me . are tearing us apart again."

 

Eileen Stein is gone immediately and got a 100-thousand dollar severance package.

 

The current Director of Public Works in Sisters, Paul Vertagna, will step in and do the city manager's job on an interim basis.

 

Last year the Sisters Council back then nearly fired Stein, but a public outcry saved her job.
