Update: City of Bell, CA "City Manager" Didn't Get Paid Just $787,000 -- With Benefits, He Got $1.5 Million Per Year

What benefits?

Well, let's start out with a generous paid vacation.

How generous?

Twenty weeks. Twenty weeks of paid vacation. So his job, which only apparently took little more than half a full working year to do, paid $787,000 for a half year's work, and then paid him almost the same for his "vacation."

When you have twenty weeks off, it's not a vacation. It's a part time job.

The records say Rizzo was to receive $386,786 in paid vacation and sick benefits this year on top of his base salary. Casso said city officials were still trying to understand the compensation agreement. But the documents appear to show Rizzo was being paid for 107 vacation days and 36 sick days a year.

Average salary of a City of Bell resident? $29,000 per year.

Why, oh why, does that look so much like a mugshot?

Anyone want to guess that maybe there's, I don't know, maybe some kind of old-country Sicilian organization involved here?
