Olton City Council met in a special meeting yesterday. Following a brief, 30 minute executive session, the council re-convened in open meeting and voted unanimously to terminated City Manager, Marvin Tillman. This comes as Tillman faces three third degree indictments stemming from a Texas Rangers Investigation.
Under the terms of the contract, Tillman will receive his salary plus full benefits each month for one year. This amounts to approximately $5,000/month plus benefits. If Tillman had resigned instead of termination the term would have been six months.
This is the second key administrator to be terminated this month in Olton. The council will be working to fill the Police Chief’s position and City Manager’s position in the coming weeks.
