Vail Daily letter: Moving forward in Eagle
One seemingly minor, yet wholly huge detail is helping to restore my trust in the town of Eagle board — Mr. Stavney’s negotiated settlement with the town of five months instead of six months severance package. If the board truly made a nefarious political move and was suspended without causation, I am sure Mr. Stavney and his lawyers would have been able to secure a settlement for more than the six months severance pay, let alone having to settle for less than the contract stipulated.
I trust the board made a necessary personnel decision to improve the town and hope others will take this information and the commentary from the Vail Daily with a grain of salt — we are talking about a politician after all (and a good one). I hope Eagle can move past this and get back to working together to improve the town we all love.
