Earlier in August we had a story headlined, State Attorney General’s Office to review Belfair Water District manager’s contract.
That headline was not quite correct. The AG received a copy of the contract, but according to sources there did not actually review it, saying it didn’t fall under the AG’s purview.
Apparently it does fall under the state auditor’s review. State Sen. Tim Sheldon, D-Potlatch, said officials from the AG’s office suggested he submit it to the auditor.
The auditor’s office confirmed that it is reviewing the contract. First it will consider what areas it can weigh in on and then do just that.
The contract gives Dave Tipton, district manager, two-years pay if he quits and three if he is fired for anything other than a crime. He also gets paid extra money for meetings that start or run late, can disallow anyone from entering his office and lets him take his dog to work.
I’d like that last piece in my contract.
Then I want a dog.
Maybe if I can bring it to work my wife will let me have one.
