Hillsboro city commissioners will seek a quick, clean conclusion to the two-year tenure of embattled City Auditor Matt Mutzenberger.

At their regular meeting Monday, commissioners directed city attorney John Juelson to negotiate with Mutzenberger’s attorney for a severance package that eliminates the need for a public hearing and avoids potential litigation against the city.

Convening privately in a 30-minute executive session, the five commissioners met with their attorney to outline a termination proposal.

Once the final terms of package are negotiated, a majority vote of commissioners will be needed to approve them.

The public vote could come quickly and may necessitate a special meeting prior to the board’s next regular meeting July 20, Juelson noted.

Juelson explained that the agreement will include the condition that Mutzenberger gives up any legal claims against the city, the commission or individual commissioners.
