UPLAND (AP) — Leaders of a Southern California community have fired the city manager for an unspecified employment breach and failure to follow direction from the city council.

The Upland City Council voted unanimously in a special closed session meeting on Wednesday to fire City Manager Robb Quincey, who has been on paid leave since Jan. 4.

City Attorney William Curley tells the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin that the firing was based on what he called two prongs: breach of employment agreement and failure to follow specific council direction.

No other details about the termination are being released.

Curley earlier outlined possible cause for Quincey’s termination, including settlement of a police sergeant’s claim alleging he was passed over for a promotion because he investigated a domestic dispute between Quincey and an ex-girlfriend.
