Dan O'Leary lays self offKELLER, Texas -- The administrator of a North Texas city believes he's not needed and has laid himself off.

Keller City Manager Dan O'Leary announced his decision Wednesday.

O'Leary says the Fort Worth-area city of nearly 40,000 has two assistant managers and really does not need a third administrator. He earns about $176,000 annually as manager of the city about 20 miles north of Fort Worth.

The 57-year-old O'Leary, who was hired in 2007, says he has no plans to retire. His last day on the job will be April 20.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that O'Leary informed city council members of his decision during a closed session Tuesday. Elected officials did not immediately say who will assume his responsibilities.

"The administrator of a North Texas city believes he's not needed and has laid himself off." If he quits or retires he'll not get unemployment....but he laid himself off....will he be able to get unemployment?

At $176,000 a year, I dont think he did it for the unemployment.
