Manitou Springs City Administrator Jason Wells has left his job just a few weeks after Mayor Ken Jaray and new Council members took office, the Pikes Peak Bulletin reported. Council voted Jan. 23 to part ways with Wells, who had been in his position for nearly four years.

Finance Director Rebecca Davis has taken over Wells’ duties while an interim is sought. The city and Wells are reportedly still working on “mutually amicable terms of separation.” Jaray didn’t return the Indy’s phone call seeking comment, but leading up to his recent election in November, he was a vocal critic of city staff. In an endorsement interview with the Indy, he was asked to name anything he thought the city’s staff had done well. He declined to do so, saying instead that staff did not have a good relationship with the public.
