Title: Resolution Approving an Amendment to the Employment Agreement between William R. Wheeler and the City of Ann Arbor
Resolution Approving an Amendment to the Employment Agreement between William R. Wheeler and the City of Ann Arbor
The City approved an employment agreement with William Wheeler in March, 2010 to continue his services as the Municipal Center Project Manager. The contract was structured to expire when Mr. Wheeler hit a maximum compensation of $126,000.00 or by April 30, 2011. Unfortunately, the renovation of the Larcom building has taken longer than originally expected as a result of the basement flood and other unanticipated conditions that can be found during renovation projects. His services provide a significant value to the contract and allow staff to focus on their other City obligations as the project finishes up.

Your approval is requested to extend Mr. Wheeler’s contract 60 days until June 30, 2011. No change in compensation from the original contract is requested as we are below the original maximum compensation approved. Mr. Wheeler has been judicious with his hours worked and also took a compensation cut on July 1, 2010 in line with other non-union staff, as provided for in his contract.
