Public Service Director Jon Eckel could be the first Perrysburg city employee to take advantage of a new policy that allows people to retire and then get hired back at a lower pay.

The city is expected to vote today to accept Mr. Eckel's retirement and rehiring. Mr. Eckel's rehire date is expected to start Oct. 1, after council's approval and a public hearing held later in September.

If he was rehired, his salary would drop to $79,546 annually - or $20,321 less than the $99,867 he makes a year.

Mr. Eckel, 54, also would be paid his pension, although he said Monday he had not yet decided which retirement package he would choose and did not know how much his pension would be.
