would resign. board members acknowledged the almost million dollar payout. it seems ridiculous, $340,000 is to avoid litigation. $600,000 is for sevps pay but some board members point out it's cheaper to defend a lawsuit and cheaper than losing an illegal case. they don't say why she would have reason to sue or any merit in the case. here is more to the mystery. no one said why the board wanted to get rid of her. she is leaving behind a budget surplus of $28 million. also00 her watch there was an earthquake retrofit project that scheduled to be finished under budget. big mystery, big money. now that she is leaving, board needs to appoint an interim general manager and search for a permanent replacement. they plan to start that process today.
