Boardman chief to retire then be rehired

Published: Thu, December 16, 2010 @ 12:03 a.m.

Staff report


Township trustees have finalized a memorandum of understanding to retire — and then rehire — the police chief.

Chief Jack Nichols will retire at the end of the month and be rehired Jan. 1 for a three-year term. The memorandum also has an automatic three-year renewal unless the board votes otherwise, making the agreement effective until Dec. 31, 2016.

Nichols, who has 33 years of service with the township, has a current compensation of $128,000 annually, which includes salary and benefits. When rehired, it will be closer to $60,000.

The memorandum originally was drafted June 16 and was finalized Monday at the regular meeting of the trustees.

Township officials had said in the summer that the $60,000 in savings would be used as the starting salary for a new patrolman.

In an interview this week, Administrator Jason Loree said: “We’re still hoping to hire another patrolman in March. However, it really depends on the revenues. Right now, it’s too close to call.”

Sounds like there may be some double dipping involved here. Why was there no mention of how much the police chief will receive in retirement monies?

Typical Boardman corruption. You know how it goes...you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig...this looks good on paper and the rhetoric coming out of the trustees mouths, but this is a shrouded plot that will kick all Boardmanites in the mouth when it all shakes out. This will drive the township further into debt, no additional officers will be hired. They have been calling that out for over a year yet no one is on board. Why is that? Like I have said numerous times before, the township should be audited. Misappropriation of funds and general mismanagement would be easliy found. Folks would get fired, maybe even be found criminally negligent, corrupt, all the tags that fit the bill. Funny how there was going to be an audit several months ago then, hmmmm, the township had a balanced budget. Must have been some cramped hands doing all that erasing and re-entry of dollars in the books just so they could call off the dogs. Like they say, what goes around comes around...

This needs to be clarified. when the chief is rehired will his salary be 60K period or 60K plus benefits. How much will his retirement be? Knowing what public sector retirements are, he will probably be making more than he is now. What are the real numbers.

Vindy, what you have here is a little vague. Do a little research and spell it out!

I see the mush mouths have the mush brains doing the Pavlovian response to the catch phrase "double dipping".

The Chief is going to draw his retirement, and work another job. How is that double dipping?

That is, unless you think working while drawing a retirement is double dipping. You may want to watch that, lots of retirees wouldn't be able to eat without that second job, so right there you can't complain about working and drawing retirement.

Or, you could retire and go to work and we could say you're double dipping.

Which means that if you stop the chief from getting his retirement WE can stop YOU from getting your retirement.

Because thats how it goes, You can't bit ... complain about someone doing something then expect to get away with the same actions yourself. I guess you could expect to be guilty of that by which you complain, that is the MO of todays Conservative ....

So the Chief retires, his retirement will cost Boardman no more or less than if the chief draws retirement and sits at home with his thumb up his behind. Actually, could cost less because Boardman won't be contributing their part for someone making 6 figures (just like a private employer would be making, so watch where you complain).

Then Boardman gets an experienced Chief at a reduced rate. Hows that bad? Or would you like Boardman to hire a new chief at 6 figures? Or for more than just the 60k?

The only way this isn't a win situation is if the Boardman Chief is a Jackass. Then we would be missing an opportunity to dispose of him.

So you really want to watch the wanking over someone working and drawing retirement,

Unless your saying that someone who paid into a retirement fund shouldn't be able to draw retirement.

And that could come back to bite you.

Rob and Losers...way to go on the leftist response of everyone should get what they deserve, whaam whaa. That is essentially why we had the housing market crash, unqualified loao recipients being handed mortgages, the market crash, all the wonderful Dem gifts that have been heaped on us. Never look at what is happening and say it needs to be fixed or nixed, just keep spending, to hell with the end result, right? Beware how the manipulation continues, see how this eventually costs the township, then come back in and praise your ignorance.
