Woodway city manager and public safety director Yost Zakhary has resigned as the city's public safety director.
City attorney Mike Dixon told Channel 6 the city received a complaint from an employee in the city's public safety department alleging Zakhary made "inappropriate comments."
According to Dixon, Zakhary recalled some of the instances, not all, saying he felt he made them in a joking manner but that Zakhary acknowledged he should have never made the comments.
Zakhary submitted his resignation as public safety director, effective April 11, when he returns from medical leave. He will, however, remain in his job as Woodway city manager so long as he completes "reviews and training" with Dixon.
When asked about Zakhary's resignation only applying to his job as public safety director, the city directed Channel 6 to Dixon who declined comment.
