Manatee County Administrator gets pay raise, new contract

 
 

 

 

The Manatee County Commission voted 5-2 Tuesday in favor of a new five-year contract for County Administrator Ed Hunzeker. 


Voting in favor were commissioners Larry Bustle, John Chappie, Carol Whitmore, Betsy Benac and Vanessa Baugh. Voting against were Commissioners Robin DiSabatino and Michael Gallen. 


The contract delays the retirement of Hunzeker, who was scheduled to retire Aug. 31, 2014.

Under the five-year contract, negotiated with Larry Bustle, county commission chairman, Hunzeker receives a $34, 720.20 annual raise.

The raise grows Hunzeker’s annual salary to $203,845, up from his current pay of $169, 124.80.

It also cuts a large lump-sum retirement payment promised to Hunzeker from his participation in the Florida Retirement System’s Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP).

He forfeits a $337, 411.83 payment from the DROP program, for which Hunzeker, 65, signed up for when he was 62 years old.
