City IT director gone after four years

Carson City's information technology director is no longer with the city after almost four years on the job.

Kevin Haggerty and City Manager Larry Werner "decided to part ways" late last month, said Andy Burnham, public works director and acting city manager.

Burnham said he isn't sure if Haggerty was fired or if he resigned.

"Larry thought that the department was taken in a direction counter to where he wanted it to be taken," Burnham said.

Werner is out of town and could not be reached for comment.

Haggerty said he had to decline to comment on the situation until he spoke with his attorney.

Mayor Bob Crowell said he saw a message that Haggerty was no longer with the city, but did not know if he was fired or if he resigned. The city board of supervisors leaves employee management to Werner, he said.

Haggerty directed the information technology department from April 2005 to March this year. The department had nine employees and Haggerty made about $101,000 year.

The city posted an opening for Haggerty's former job March 27.

The last city department director to leave was former Human Resources Director Ann Silver. Werner fired her in June due to what he said were "philosophical differences."

Carson City has 680 regular employees and 125 temporary employees.
