Retired and Rehired in Central Falls: “Terribly inappropriate” but legal
Ok, vent over this:
The police chief of Central Falls is drawing criticism for collecting a $43,000-per-year pension while also continuing to work and draw an annual salary of $72,000….Moran “retired” two weeks ago, then signed a five-year contract under a deal approved by the city retirement board, city lawyer, and mayor….Moran says he made the move so he would be eligible to receive approximately $35,000 for unused sick days. He says his deal actually saves the city money in the long run.
Former city Finance Director Edna Poulin said the arrangement, although legal, looks “terribly inappropriate.”
More here. Oh, and he’s 47.
