Who said that municipal employees can't make much money?
Robert Payton recently resigned as Miramar City Manager and walked away with $2.4 million in deferred pension and retirement benefits. He will collect an annual pension benefit of $110,593, according to an article by Heather Carney in the March 21 Sun Sentinel.
This is not bad for a man who started his career with Miramar as a garbage man. He began with Miramar in 1977 and became city manager in 2001. He also held positions as community services director and public works director, according to Heather Carney in the March 21 Sun Sentinel.
Cole Stanton, of Miramar said, "I think this is little excessive. But he worked for a long time in Miramar so maybe he deserves it," said Stanton.
