Hollywood city manager resigns after Swinging Richards DUI arrest; gets large severance package

BY CARLI TEPROFF, [email protected]

Hollywood City Manager Douglas Hewett resigned Friday, exactly 13 weeks and three days into his tenure.

He will leave with a $66,000 severance package — the equivalent of 20 weeks pay — plus 12 months of health coverage.

The Hollywood City Commission also agreed to a “no disparagement clause’’ in exchange for Hewett agreeing to not sue the city. The deal Hewett worked out with the city in exchange for resigning is financially better for him than what the city would have been required to pay him if he had been fired.

The resignation was announced at a special meeting Friday called by Mayor Peter Bober after details surrounding Hewett’s DUI arrest leaving Swinging Richards gay strip club on Easter Sunday became public.
