Port Angeles: Port commissioners go off agenda to name Boddy executive director

PORT ANGELES — In a surprise move, Port commissioners voted 2-0 Monday to hire Clyde Boddy — who has been interim executive director this year — as its part-time executive director on a one-year contract.

Commissioner Leonard Beil abstained from Monday’s vote, saying later that he was upset that the item was not on the Port board’s meeting agenda and the vote was taken after the regular meeting had adjourned.

The Port’s 2002 executive director contract was not an agenda item for the regular meeting starting at 9:30 a.m. Monday.

It also wasn’t brought up during the “items not on the agenda” portion of the meeting.

Commissioners Glenn Beckman and Jack Waud described the agenda omission as an honest oversight.

The contract for one year, which Waud said is a normal term for a port executive director, pays Boddy $94,800 per year for 120 hours of work per month — an average of about 28 hours per week.

He will receive no vacation, sick leave, retirement or life insurance benefits, but will receive medical and dental insurance.

Beckman said under a new state law, the port could hire Boddy for up to 1,500 hours per year without affecting his retirement benefits. His new contract calls for 1,440 hours in 2002.
