Auburn City Manager Leaving

The Auburn Mayor and the Auburn City Council met Friday morning to decide the future of the city manager.

David Watkins has been on administrative leave this week following his annual job evaluation which was reportedly above average.

However, Watkins is leaving and will get a  year's severance pay.

Watkins makes $170,000 plus benefits making him one of the highest paid city managers in the country for a city the size of Auburn.
