City offers manager nearly $300,000 to resign. She took it.

Longtime City Manager Laura S. Gill helped Elk Grove weather a recession and grow to 170,000 residents, but now its city council wants a new city manager who can bring in employers. On Wednesday, May 9, 2018, the city signed off on a severance payment of $297,053, as well as any additional pay and accrued leave Gill had accumulated. In return she waived her right to sue the city.
