— The man who managed the city of Henderson for nearly 23 years is now out of a job.

Eric Williams was fired Monday by the newly elected City Council. Members said they wanted to change the direction of the city, which includes bringing more jobs to the area, as well as making the city a more attractive place to live and retire.

Mayor Clem Seifert said replacing Williams had been discussed for years.

Mark Warren, who was assistant city manager, is now the interim city manager. In a news release, the City Council thanked Williams for his years of service.

Williams, who will get a six-month severance package, was not available for comment.
