Recently retired San Pablo police chief Walt Schuld, who has been hired by the city as interim assistant general manager for six months, will be paid nearly $100 an hour on top of his comfy retirement package, according to the West County Times.

Schuld is replacing retired GM Kelsey Worthy until a permanent replacement is found. As interim GM, Schuld will earn $97.58 per hour for up to 960 hours of work, the Times reported.

That alone is a comfy salary, but remember Schuld also just retired after 31 years of service to the San Pablo Police Department. As part of his police retirement package, he receives $182,671 annually, or 90-percent of his final base salary. He’ll be receiving that annual sum for the rest of his life.

Interestingly, Schuld’s new, high-paying temporary gig as GM will actually save taxpayer dollars. Read the full Times article to find out how.
