Rye Golf Club Manager Resigns

Scott Yandrasevich will vacate his residence on the golf club grounds no later than Feb. 28.

Rye Golf Club Manager Scott Yandrasevich resigned from his position effective Jan. 18, 2013, the City of Rye announced.

The City of Rye was notified of Yandrasevich's resignation in a letter from his attorney. Yandrasevich also agreed to vacate his residence on the golf club grounds no later than Feb. 28. 

Yandrasevich had been on administrative leave since the middle of October 2012, when the city and other agencies launched an investigation into his conduct. At that time, questions were raised over the club’s dealings with its temporary staffing agency, RM Staffing, over the summer.

Yandrasevich has since admitted that he hired the company to staff the club and has worked for them independently as a consultant. His wife is also employed by RM.

RGC members are asking Yandrasevich for details on the company’s billing of $2.2 million in salary costs, $400,000 of that attributed to about 11,000 hours of overtime in an 18-month period. Residents have also questioned if Yandrasevich took into account the club members’ best interests when he hired a company with which he had personal ties.

The investigation is ongoing.

According to the city's announcement, "affirmative steps to ensure that the club operations will continue without interruption [have been taken], and the City looks forward to a successful 2013 season."

This is a sad ending to what should have been a successful relationship. I think the city of Rye needs to get out of the Restaurant/Catering business and concentrate on the Golf/Pool experience.

There should be a criminal investigation, why is Rye investigating with a Rye City paid lawyer. It would seem to me that if the City was capable of this activity it would have identified the problem long before millions of tax payers money was spent on overtime.
