Scottsdale this week filed its first response to a lawsuit brought by the Tribune to obtain City Manager Jan Dolan’s self-evaluation, the only written document pertaining to her job performance.
A law firm hired by the city wrote that the city’s best interests in efficient administration of government outweigh the Tribune’s interest in the inspection of confidential personnel information. A court hearing date has not been set.
Dolan, the city’s top administrator, received an 8 percent raise from the City Council earlier this year, increasing her base salary to $181,083 plus an additional $25,351 a year in deferred compensation.
The Tribune first requested the document Dec. 1. After repeated denials, the lawsuit was filed Feb. 15.
