Port Angeles: Port commission meeting Monday reviews executive director’s contract

The three Port of Port Angeles commissioners on Monday will discuss — and possibly revise — Port Executive Director Clyde Boddy’s controversial contract that allows him to work part-time for $94,800 a year.

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Port’s headquarters, 338 W. First St.

Seating for the 42 chairs in the meeting room is first come, first served.

Questions and input from the public are welcome during the two public comment sessions and prior to the board’s deliberation on each agenda item, including the Boddy contract issue.

Members of the public who wish to speak will be allowed to provide 2 to 3 minutes of comment.

On Friday, a fourth Port Angeles business group — Science Technology and Manufacturing Association — joined with the Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce, Port Angeles Business Association and North Peninsula Building Association in objecting to Boddy’s contract.

The part-time arrangement, for a 28-hour workweek over one year, was done to protect the $47,841 annual state pension Boddy now receives as a retiree who worked as a Port employee from 1969 to 1998.

Under the state “double-dipping” law, working as a regular employee 40 hours a week for 12 months would cancel the pension.

With the executive director’s salary and his pension, Boddy would take home $142,641 in 2002.
