LELAND, NC (WECT) - The town manager of Leland has a new contract with a higher salary.
Council approved final details Thursday night of the deal for David Hollis. It is an open ended contract, which means there is no specific term of employment.
Hollis will be paid $101,541 under the new deal, with the potential of at least three pay increases per year. Hollis started last November at an annual pay of $95,000.
With signing the new deal, the town gave Hollis a 2% increase and folded a stipend of $3800 given to him for driving expenses into his salary.
Under the terms of the deal, Hollis will receive two performance reviews each year, with the possibility of an increase each time. Council would have to approve the hike. Should council vote to increase the pay for employees across the board, Hollis will also be included in that hike.
The contract also gives Hollis all employee benefits afforded to town staff, with the exception that he will receive 22 days of vacation each year.
Hollis would have to give sixty days written notice should he resign, while the town would have to pay him $100,000 should council fire him without cause.
Hollis replaced the retired manager Bill Farris.
