The Tuolumne Utilities District board voted to fire General Manager Pete Kampa during a closed-door meeting Tuesday night.
Board President Michael Sarno confirmed this morning that he was on his way to the TUD office at 18885 Nugget Blvd., to make the announcement to staff.
The board voted 3-2 to fire Kampa effective immediately, with directors Ruanne Mikkelsen and Delbert Rotelli against the decision, Sarno said.
According to Sarno, the board will find someone to temporarily fill the position while looking for a permanent replacement.
Kampa was hired in 2006 after serving as general manager at Twain Harte Community Services District.
