Village, Perkins agree to new part-time police chief role

— The MOU signed by Perkins and Mayor Marty Hubbard states that Perkins will be a part-time employee of the village for the entire 2013 calendar year, and his duties will include all duties and typical work activities of a police chief as required by the Onondaga County Department of Civil Service.

Perkins will be paid an annual salary of $14,640, along with the usual clothing and uniform allowance, necessary equipment and a vehicle provided by the village for work purposes. He will not receive health insurance through the village because he already receives such insurance from his previous job as Camillus police chief.

Perkins previously had stated that he intends to spend certain periods of time in Florida as part of his partial retirement. The MOU states that any time he is absent from the village for extended periods of time he will not receive his weekly salary payments from the village. Upon his return to duty, his salary payments will re-commence and the agreed-upon salary balance will be pro-rated over the remaining weeks of his term, so that he will receive the full annual salary amount stated in the agreement.
