Isamac Torres-Figueroa, hired three weeks ago to run Reading City Hall’s Citizen Service Center, abruptly resigned Monday, city officials said.
The officials would not comment on reports by sources over the weekend that Torres-Figueroa was given a resign-or-be-fired mandate Friday afternoon. Reading City Hall sources on Monday confirmed the mandate.
Managing Director Carole B. Snyder said only that Torres-Figueroa submitted her resignation Monday, and that the city is weighing its options for how to fill the vacancy. She would not comment further.
Contacted Monday night, Torres-Figueroa said she was afforded a great opportunity in the city position and learned a lot.
