The Dublin City Council fired City Manager Jerry Guillory in a unanimous vote Friday.
After a closed executive session lasting 40 minutes, the council ended its relationship with Guillory for "lack of confidence."
At least two Dublin police officers escorted Guillory through city hall and monitored him as he removed his personal belongings from his city office.
Councilman Aaron Carney, whose term expires June 11, made the motion which was seconded by Bobby Mendez before gaining the councilís full support.
No other council member spoke during public portions of the meeting.
Guillory declined comment until at least Tuesday, saying he would first weigh his legal options.
"You'll have a lengthy article to write at that point," Guillory told reporters.
