This is the first time in memory that a Miami city manager makes such an unprecedented appointment.
We are also sure that added to his base salary, Mr. Phillip will receive the requisite phone and car "allowances" and other generous benefits that bureaucrats bestow on each other.
Among his duties:
-Provide recommendations ... regarding ... oversight and management of the police department.
-Assess succession plan for all ranks.
-Evaluate all training.
We always thought this was the job for the Chief of Police.
Chief Exposito already makes $196,000 a year.
And now add $70,000+ to the equation.
All because Mayor Regalado can't or won't fire Expo.
