CLINTON, Iowa (MCT) – During a special meeting this morning to discuss City Administrator Jeff Horne’s performance, the Clinton City Council recommended that he resign.

The discussion was held in closed session, which Horne requested during the meeting prior to the discussion.

The Council approved moving into closed session on a 5-1 vote.

Following the 17-minute closed session, the Council unanimously recommended Horne resign. Horne did not tender his resignation during the meeting.

Horne’s contract stipulates if he resigns following the Council recommendation, he will receive 6 months aggregate salary and 6 months of family health insurance.

The City Council recommended the severance be paid in installments twice a month. If Horne resigns, the resignation will still need to be approved by the City Council.
