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.
