EVERETT — The city of Everett has agreed to pay its former public works director for another 3 1/2 weeks.
Dave Davis had been with the city since 1979. Mayor Cassie Franklin let him go Friday. New mayors often make staff leadership changes.
Under the terms of a separation agreement, Davis also will be paid about $45,115 in unused vacation and sick time. In addition, he will be covered by his city health insurance through April.
The terms also say Davis will not seek litigation over his firing, and neither side will disparage the other.
The document was signed by Davis on Saturday and city officials on Monday. The Daily Herald obtained a copy through state public records laws.
Davis’ salary for 2017 was $168,120. His departure comes as the city is considering redeveloping the public works center on Cedar Street. The project is expected to surpass $100 million.
Paul Kaftanski, an executive director with the city, will serve as interim public works director.
