San Lorenzo Water District manager fired after Grand Jury releases critique

BOULDER CREEK, Calif. - The district manager for the San Lorenzo Valley Water District was fired just days after the Santa Cruz County Grand Jury released a report criticizing the district for poor financial and operation oversight.

District manager Jim Mueller was let go Thursday night during a unanimous board decision.

The civil grand jury's report specifically looked at Mueller and his role in overseeing a multi-million investment portfolio, among other scrutiny. 

Despite this latest development,  the water district's merge with Lompico is still on the table.
