Texas city controller lays himself off

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Budgets are tight in cities nationwide, and oftentimes that means someone has to get laid off.

That's what's happening in Keller, Texas near Dallas, where the city manager is laying himself off. Dan O'Leary says the city doesn't really need him and could find something better to do with his $176,000 a year salary.

Keller, 57, has three city administrators and a population of just 40,000 people. He says this is not retirement and he won't be getting severance.
