De Baca County commissioners voted to dismiss County Manager John Nuttall during Tuesday’s County Commission meeting, according to Committee Chair Joe Steele.

Steele would not state the cause behind the dismissal, saying that he “doesn’t feel comfortable putting personnel matters out there.”

Commissioner Tommy Roybal said Nuttall was an at-will employee.

“We could let him go at our own discretion,” Roybal said.

Nuttall’s last day will be Nov. 30.

Nuttall could not be reached for comment.
