The ICMA is an association that states its mission is to "create excellence in local governance."

The ICMA determined Yousry "Yost" Zakhary "created an environment in which his employees were offended by his language and conduct."

The behavior reportedly continued despite direct reports telling Zakhary his behavior toward women he worked with was inappropriate, according to the ICMA.

"In addition to creating an uncomfortable work environment, Mr. Zakhary placed the city at risk for legal liability," the ICMA said.

 It was determined Zakhary's conduct was in violation of tenet three of the ICMA code of ethics.

The tenet states, in part, "Members should conduct themselves so as to maintain public confidence in their position and profession."
