STRATFORD Former Democratic Mayor James R. Miron and five of his top administrators and staff assistants departed with a total of $240,000 in sick and vacation cash-out benefits including two aides employed for only six months who received $20,000 each, the new mayor, John Harkins, and his administration discovered during its first two days in Town Hall.
Also, all five including former Chief Administrative Officer Suzanne McCauley, Human Resources Director Edmund Winterbottom, Finance Director John Norko and the two mayoral aides unexpectedly did not show up for work Tuesday, which was the first day under the new Harkins administration.
That leaves the new Republican mayor without three of his top administrators just as the town is getting ready to begin the new budget process for fiscal 2010-11.
After McCauley, Winterbottom and the two aides did not notify Harkins, his staff, or anyone at Town Hall that they had left their positions, and were promptly terminated, Harkins said.
Only Norko, who submitted a resignation letter last month, had notified the town he would be leaving, but even he did not specify an exact date, according to the mayors chief of staff, Adam R. Bauer.
Miron signed off on the cash payouts before working his final day in Town Hall last Friday, according to Bauer.
Bauer said it appears Miron, McCauley and Winterbottom received about $40,000 each, and Norko cashed out at nearly $50,000. He said an estimated $30,000 also appears to have been paid out, although it is not clear at the present time who received the payments and how much they were for.
