Jody Weis paycheck raises eyebrows at City Hall

Former Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis collected a check for $76,000 for 64 unused vacation days.

It's raising eyebrows at City Hall for a number of reasons, partly because Weis himself made a policy change in 2010 that allowed command staff members to carry up to 39 unused vacation days from one year to the next.

Weis resigned from his $310,000-a-year job on March 1.

Weis told the Chicago Sun-Times that it is city policy to compensate employees for vacation time earned but not used and that his specific payment was vetted by the police department and others.
