The former executive director of the Philadelphia Parking Authority, who resigned in September amid a sexual-harassment scandal, is seeking a six-figure payout - on top of the largest pension payments in the city's retirement system.
Vincent J. Fenerty Jr. has filed for more than $200,000 in unused vacation time, sick time, and comp time, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Fenerty, who had run the agency since 2005 and was paid $223,000 a year at the time of his retirement, currently is collecting an annual pension of $158,628.
PPA spokesman Marty O'Rourke declined to comment Tuesday on Fenerty's pending payment, saying the amount still is being calculated. Fenerty did not respond to requests for comment.
Fenerty, 60, a Republican ward leader who first was hired at the PPA in 1983, lost his job in September after Inquirer columnist Mike Newall reported that Fenerty had been accused of harassing two coworkers in the early 2000s and around 2014.
In the more recent case, Fenerty last year paid $30,000 for an independent investigation that concluded he had sexually harassed a senior director at the PPA.
He was allowed to keep his job, although with curtailed power. PPA board members noted that there had been no prior allegations against him.
But the Inquirer subsequently reported the PPA in 2007 had offered $150,000 to another woman who had accused Fenerty of licking her ear, pulling down her blouse to reveal her cleavage, unhooking her bra at a party, and making inappropriate comments to her.
The woman ultimately declined the money and went back to work at the PPA.
The PPA board claimed in late September that it was unaware of the earlier harassment case.
O'Rourke later said the agency's attorney had, in fact, informed the board in 2006, but that they all forgot about it. Some board members insisted they were never told.
In October, the PPA board selected Clarena Tolson, a Democrat, to replace Fenerty at the Republican-controlled PPA. Tolson had been the city's deputy managing director for infrastructure and transportation under Mayor Kenney.
Kenney spokesman Mike Dunn said Tuesday that the administration was not aware of any discussions involving Fenerty's unused vacation time, sick time, and comp time.
"The PPA is a state-controlled authority, and the city has no control over matters related to PPA current or former employees," Dunn said.
