MOUNTAIN HOUSE – The Mountain House Community Services District board of directors voted unanimously to terminate the contract of General Manager Janice McClintock during a special board meeting on Tuesday morning.

The board discussed the employment of the general manager during a closed session that began in open session at 9 a.m. and reconvened back into open session after more than four hours behind closed doors inside the district office at 230 S. Sterling Drive.

Announcing the board’s decision was board counsel Daniel Schroeder, who said all of the board members were present during the closed session and that it was a unanimous vote that the contract with McClintock be terminated.

Schroeder said the termination was categorized as without cause and would go into effect at midnight Wednesday night.

Appointed as interim general manager was Gay Giles, the district’s director of finance.

No further discussion on the action was made by the board during the meeting.

McClintock was hired by the district on April 15, 2013. She had signed a five year contract with the community and was given an annual salary of $130,000.

The wheels on the bus go round and round....but I see them falling off soon. Three GM's in 3 years. Good luck getting a quality candidate to apply if they look at our track record. Guess the headhunting company is going to have a banner year at our expense.

Maybe they should hire a consultant to hire someone? They can tax the residents some more to help pay for it. I hear Leon Churchill is looking for a job. Just don't give him a credit card.
