Wells city administrator fired

WELLS — Wells City Administrator Steve Bloom was fired last week due to complaints about his job performance, according to documents filed with City Attorney David Frundt.

The details of the complaint, released Monday and signed by City Councilor Ann Schuster and Mayor Ron Gaines, contend that Bloom failed to attend two meetings involving city business and was remiss in having a required report completed in a timely manner.

The complaint also states Bloom did not communicate city contract negotiation information to the city’s union employees and was tardy in completion of the 2013 city budget.

Bloom, who had been due for a six-month performance review, came to the job in October and had been working under probationary status.
