Gainesville Commissioners fire GRU General Manager Ed Bielarski
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - The City of Gainesville Commission voted to terminate the Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) General Manager Ed Bielarski during a commission meeting Thursday.
The decision was made in a 4-2 vote with Commissioners David Arreola and Desmond Duncan-Walker in dissent.
In Sept. of 2021, the commissioners made a motion to fire Bielarski but that motion failed after an extended public comment. Many people spoke in defense of the general manager including GRU employees.
