After a lengthy closed session following the regular meeting Monday night it was revealed that Fairmont City Administrator Mike Humpal is on paid administrative leave, effective today, and Troy Nemmers, city engineer/public works director, has been named city administrator on an interim basis.The council voted 3-2 to place Humpal on paid leave “indefinitely.” No reason was given for the action, and there was no discussion afterward.

At the beginning of Monday’s council meeting, a vote to approve the agenda resulted in the council’s familiar 3-2 split, with Peters and Hasek wanting the closed session evaluation removed, saying they had not received any evaluation forms.
