DHA board extends director's contract

DANVILLE — Danville Housing Authority board members extended executive director Greg Hilleary’s contract for another 19 months.

The board on Thursday approved extending Hilleary’s contract from Jan. 1, 2013 to Aug. 1, 2014.

Commissioner Sandra Lawlyes voted against the contract. Commissioner Don McLaughlin was absent.

Hilleary’s annual salary will increase from $65,055 to $67,000 with appropriate benefits for the first 12 months and the remaining seven months to be agreed upon at a later date.

Hilleary has served as executive director since Aug. 5, 2005. His last two contracts have been for one-year each.

His current contract runs through Dec. 31.

Hilleary met with board chairman Rick Strebing and vice chairman Lon Henderson in November after a closes session that was conduced during the November board meeting to discuss the review of Hilleary’s job performance and his contract renewal.

Strebing said a job performance evaluation was conducted regarding Hilleary that involved 30-50 questions to identify Hilleary’s strengths and weaknesses, etc.

Strebing said board members also decided to extend the contract additional months to have it fall closer to Hilleary’s original start date and not fall around the holiday season.

“Thank you for your evaluation and (your) confidence for the future,” Hilleary said.

Board members Thursday also approved new annual and five-year plans for the DHA.

Lawlyes questioned training and more serious consideration for the Section 8 homeownership where some residents would be paying mortgages.

Also, she asked that the annual plan include a review, after renovations are completed, of making Mer Che Manor an elderly-only building.

In other business, board members approved a $78,000 contract ($26,000 for each year) for three years of audits from 2013-2015 with Rector and Reeder of Lawrenceville, Ga.

Board members also learned that DHA employees received a $200 Christmas bonus this year.

The DHA board’s next meeting is on Jan. 17.
