A former Lancaster city official who claimed that the City Council violated the state's open-meetings law in voting to oppose two gay rights bills said Monday that he will not file a lawsuit against the city to challenge the decision. Former Deputy City Clerk Alan Robertson, who is gay and resigned in protest over the council's May 6 vote, said he was concerned that he and the gay-oriented church group that he heads might have had to pay the city's legal expenses if the city had won in court.

The much-heralded Year of the Woman, which saw four women elected to the U.S. Senate and countless more elected at all levels of government, came and went at Lancaster City Hall apparently without notice.

The Lancaster City Council voted 4 to 0 Monday to accept the immediate resignation of City Manager Harold Schilling and to pay him $18,000 under a termination agreement. Schilling, 52, held the $100,000-a-year job for less than eight months. He announced July 4 that he intended to resign, citing differences with two of Lancaster's five council members. Before arriving in Lancaster, the Cal State Northridge graduate had 16 years of experience as a city manager, most recently in Reno.

The Lancaster City Council voted Monday night to oppose pending state gay rights legislation, prompting Lancaster's deputy city clerk to announce that he is a homosexual and resign on the spot in protest. "I can't support their bigotry. They use my skills. I promote (bigotry) by staying," said Alan Robertson, the city's deputy clerk and pastor of a local church group that caters to homosexuals.
