When Faith Miller chose to resign as Deltona’s city manager earlier this month, she became eligible to receive a sizable sum of cash and benefits, even though she is no longer employed by the city.
In addition to 12 months of salary, amounting to $132,761.60, Miller will receive a year of health, dental and vision insurance coverage whose premiums total $7,319.40.
She will also receive 12 months’ coverage for short- and long-term disability, and life insurance. The combined premiums for the disability and life coverages are $1,236.
Miller further qualifies for a payment of $19,565.22 in deferred compensation from the International City Management Association.
Also, she stands to receive $62,291.87 for unused vacation, $35,712.10 for accrued sick leave, and $61,426.41 for frozen sick leave.
The grand total of Miller’s severance package is $320,312.60.
The Deltona City Commission must decide whether to give Miller a lump sum or parcel out the severance pay and benefits in installments.
As well as providing for the severance of one city manager, the City Commission must now turn its attention to hiring another one. Interim City Manager Dave Denny, formerly deputy city manager, remains at the helm.
