SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) - The Sparks City Council has voted to keep City Manager Neil Krutz in his position. On Monday, three city council members voted to terminate Krutz’s contract, while two other members and Mayor Ed Lawson voted to keep him in place.

In his latest performance review, Krutz was given a rating of 2.5 out of 6, scoring particularly low, on average, in areas such as management of organization, community relations, and relations with the council.

Krutz has been the city’s manager since 2019 when he signed a contract due to expire in June of 2025. That contract, according to the City Council, has been amended several times since.

The motion was first put up for consideration during the March 13 city council meeting.
