Wauconda trustees have hired an interim community development director to oversee the village's building, planning, and zoning department.

Michael D'Onofrio will begin work Thursday. He replaces Chris Miller, who recently retired after more than six years as the building department's boss.

 

The village board agreed Monday to hire D'Onofrio as part of a contract with a Northbrook firm called GovTempsUSA.

The company will be paid $91 per hour for his services. Of that sum, D'Onofrio will be paid $65 an hour, officials said.

The expected cost to the village is around $17,500 for the duration of the contract, which runs through Sept. 7.

A two-month contract extension, to Nov. 9, is possible under the terms of the deal.

No long-term plans for the future of the position have been finalized, Village Administrator Kevin Timony said.

"The intent of the interim position is to afford the village time to plan for the best long-term solution for the department," he said.

Wauconda has worked with GovTempsUSA before, hiring an interim finance director through the company in 2016.

Wauconda trustees also hired the firm's sister company, GovHR USA, to hire Timony last year and Police Chief David Wermes in 2015.
