DALLAS (AP) - The former head of the beleaguered Dallas Housing
Authority who resigned this week, Ann Lott, is being offered
$90,000 in severance pay.
Lott stepped down Tuesday in light of possible disciplinary
action after an audit from HUD's Office of Inspector General
revealed the housing authority had spent nearly $20 million in
suspicious rental assistance payments, which included money for
dead clients.
Lott had been the agency's president and chief executive.
The Dallas Morning News reports the chairwoman of the agency's
board of commissioners, Betty Culbreath, says the $90,000 is the
same as what Lott would have received had her contract been allowed
to expire Sept. 1.
The newspaper said Lott couldn't be reached for comment.
Culbreath says at its next meeting, the board will review making
improvements in light of the audit.
It wants to have the agency's compliance officer report directly
to the board -- from now on -- instead of to the president and
chief executive.
