Curliss to leave Yellow Springs
- Published: August 20, 2013
At Village Council’s Aug. 19 meeting, Council unanimously approved a severance agreement with Village Manager Laura Curliss. According to Council’s resolution, Curliss will work until Sept. 28.
The action came after an executive session for the purpose of dismissal, demotion or discipline of an employee, which preceded the regular Council meeting. However, the announcement of Curliss’ departure came at the very end of the meeting, and Curliss was not present.
Board President Judith Hempfling praised Curliss for the ‘energy and expertise” she had brought to the Village, and Council member Karen Wintrow cited long-delayed projects Curliss had accomplished that needed to be done.
Curliss came to the Village in January 2012 as interim Village manager after Mark Cundiff left after three years. Previously, she had been assistant to the mayor of Wilmington for six years. She was appointed permanent Village manager in June 2012.
An attorney, Curliss graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School.
