Rye City Manager is Out with Little Explanation

"Rye city manager resigns, continuing unstable trend at the position

The city manager position in Rye is once again vacant after Marcus Serrano departed as chief administrative officer this week.

Mayor Josh Cohn said Serrano offered his resignation letter and the City Council accepted it at its meeting Wednesday night. Cohn said Serrano was nearing the end of his five-year deal with the city and both sides thought it was best to move on now.

“It was a mutual parting of ways,” Cohn said.

Serrano hasn’t been inside city hall since last Friday, though his last official day as city manager was Wednesday. He will now serve as a consultant for the city, Cohn said, though he couldn't immediately tell The Journal News/lohud.com how much he would make in that role after Wednesday's meeting.

The council appointed Greg Usry, who has been serving as chair of the city's finance committee, to interim city manager. Cohn said during Wednesday's meeting the Rye resident has a "wealth of experience" in municipal finance.

Serrano was appointed by the City Council in June 2015 under former Mayor Joe Sack and started the following month after he served as Dobbs Ferry’s village administrator for about seven years. He had previously worked for Peekskill, Port Chester, Ossining and Irvington.

Serrano was earning $195,000 annually in Rye.

“He was always amicable,” Cohn said.

Serrano could not be reached for comment."

  1. “Mr. Serrano then swore and signed a notarized legal affidavit that no additional records – including certain Rye records that had already been released by Yorktown but not by Rye – exist. The problem for Mr. Serrano (and Rye City officials) is they do exist and we have obtained copies. But see Mr. Serrano’s sworn Rye City Affidavit, for what it’s worth, – here.

    Concealing or suppressing or tampering with or destroying public records is a felony in NY State as it is elsewhere. Swearing to something falsely is also a crime. Federal laws cover this same ground. The EPA, to name one federal agency, restricts misuse of registered pesticides (see 16 documented apparent violations of Federal Pesticides Law at Rye Golf Club here in Series Part 5). The FBI, to name another federal agency, would likely find a possible/probable multi-million dollar insurance fraud against an American insurance company by a U.S. municipality as a matter of natural law enforcement interest.”
