Angelique Lewis manages the Dorchester Senior Housing Center which is owned by Dolton. Her father is Dolton mayor Ronnie C. Lewis.
Two Dolton trustees claimed he planned to award her a contract worth $1.4 million. They boycotted the village's city council meeting Monday night.
"There is no way I can vote on this. That is why I am boycotting this," said Willie Lowe Jr., Dolton trustee.
At the meeting the mayor revised the contract to $1, but it also calls for the mayor's daughter and another manager to get paid a total of $140,000.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the new deal also would allow the village to change the payout in the contract at any time, which is a major concern to critics who think the issue is far from settled.
