PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Disgraced former Philadelphia Parking Authority director Vince Fenerty will get one very big final pay day.
Fenerty will collect a pay-out of more than $227,000.READ MORE: Wilbin De-La-Rosa Arrested For Deadly Hit-And-Run In Kensington, Police Say
An authority spokesman says it includes unused vacation, administrative leave, comp time, and some leftover sick leave.
He says the board was informed of the amount, but didn’t need to take any action since it was consistent with any employee pay-out.
Fenerty resigned, just ahead of being dismissed, after disclosures that he had sexually harassed female employees for a number of years.READ MORE: Justin Bieber, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion To Headline Philadelphia's Made In America Festival
The spokesman says the pay-out would have been the same even if the board had fired him.
Councilman David Oh, a frequent Authority critic, says this does little to dispel the perception that the Authority can be predatory in its practices.

Oh says he understands the payment is in keeping with work rules but perhaps the work rules should be re-examined.
