After a more than nine-hour-long performance review that included public testimony, the Chandler City Council voted 5-2 early Tuesday to accept the resignation of City Manager Mark Pentz.
The council agreed to a separation agreement offered by Pentz in exchange for forgoing later legal action.
Under the agreement, Pentz will leave his job May 1 and be placed on administrative leave for three months before resigning Aug. 1.
He will also receive a full year’s salary that includes a 4 percent pay increase and a year’s worth of car-allowance payments for a combined total of $180,571. The deal also includes seven months of deferred compensation payments and the city’s share of health insurance premiums for 18 months.
