Via The Oregonian/OregonLive:
The city of Tualatin threw a luau last month for Police Chief Kent Barker to mark the end of his tenure with the city. Barker, who’d spent the last 13 years as chief, was retiring, the city said. What officials had not publicly said was that Barker, 57, had already retired.
According to data from the state’s Public Employees Retirement System, Barker has received $9,162 in monthly retirement benefits, which works out to just more than $109,940 annually, since retiring July 1, 2015. He received that on top of the $69.73 per hour that the city paid him while keeping him as police chief on a contract basis, according to the city.
It’s known as double dipping: A person collects a public pension while working for a public employer at the same time.
