Library Fires Director

Hoping to end the most discordant period in its history, the Yakima Valley Regional Library board announced they have fired Executive Director Monica Weyhe at her own request. The board approved the termination with a 4-1 vote.

While enjoying support from a majority of the board, recent questions about her authority and how she wielded the power of the office of Executive Director turned a normally passive board of trustees upside down.

Under policies, she is entitled to six month's of severance pay amounting to roughly US$57,800.
