Smith back on the job at Hyack
The recently dismissed executive director of the Hyack Festival Association was back at work in the society’s offices Wednesday.
Last week, the full Hyack board of directors voted to reinstate Douglas Smith, who was fired by Hyack’s executive board July 31. Earlier this week, Smith said he would accept the offer temporarily until certain conditions are met and would work from home.
But on Wednesday, he was back at work at the Sixth Street offices, although the conditions had yet to be resolved.
“They’re in the early stages of being addressed,” said Smith. “Presumably the board will work through that.
“Basically they’ve taken some steps to resolve this … I’ve agreed to come back to work for a period of time, and we’ll see where it goes. We’ll see how it works out.”
On Aug. 13, the board initially sought the resignations of four executives but decided to refer that decision to a special membership meeting Sept. 10.
