REDLANDS – The City Council will gather today to discuss the future of City Manager N. Enrique Martinez.

An initial e-mail sent by Mayor Pro Tem Jerry Bean regarding Martinez’s potential dismissal indicated unanimous support for the special meeting. Councilman Pete Aguilar later changed his mind.

Aguilar said Tuesday that when he received the phone call Monday asking for his support for the meeting, he thought it involved a discussion of the city manager’s performance. After consulting City Attorney Dan McHugh, he withdrew his support of the meeting.

Aguilar says he will not attend today’s meeting and that he thinks it is bad practice to hold such a meeting less than a week away from an election when three council seats are up for grabs.
