Pinellas County Administrator Bob LaSala thanks his executive staff after being terminated at the April 15 Commission meeting.
CLEARWATER – Pinellas County Commissioners voted unanimously April 15 to terminate the services of Administrator Bob LaSala.

The administrator’s annual review was the first action taken at the afternoon meeting.

Commissioner Norm Roche was absent.

Commission Chair Karen Seel asked a commissioner to make a motion to terminate LaSala’s contract without cause. She said the contract called for a 90-day notice provision. She said during those 90 days, LaSala would be reporting to her or her designee for assigned duties.

Commissioner Ken Welch made the motion, which was seconded by Commissioner Janet Long.

Welch thanked LaSala for his service.

“But I think this is an appropriate step forward,” he said.

LaSala thanked the commission for the opportunity to serve Pinellas County.

“It is with mixed emotions I leave my position,” he said. “It was an honor to serve the community.”

He said a number of the county’s goals had been accomplished during his tenure. He also pointed out that controversy resulted in some areas, specifically emergency medical services and health and community services.

He thanked his executive staff, some have been reassigned, he said.

“I’m proud to have served as your administrator,” LaSala said.
