During an Oct. 3 regular meeting, the Maywood Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution that renews the employment of Willie Norfleet, Jr., Maywood’s village manager since 2015, for one year.

Norfleet’s new term is from April 20, 2017 until April 20, 2018. His one-year employment agreement entails a base salary of $140,000, which includes a $15,000 performance bonus and four weeks of vacation.

Norfleet, who serves at-will, is also eligible for a 2018 performance bonus that cannot exceed $15,000 and that is based on a satisfactory review of his annual performance by the village board.

Norfleet was hired in 2015 to replace former village manager William Barlow, who retired in 2014. VFP

  1. Wow! $140,000 bonus salary, that is coming out from the residents of Maywood tax dollars. Q:) What has Village Manager Willie Norfleet, Jr. done to improve the village of Maywood? Why is there a huge gun violence epidemic in Maywood with a homicide rate of 9? Why did he stated about the parks in Maywood he “thinks that they are in excellent condition?” Very shocking that the trustees voted to give him the 1-year extension!

  2. Not a wise move, the village is loosing it’s value. Maywood has know economic value with businesses leaving town, Aldi left an now the car dealership on 3rd an roosevelt is gone. The village has been sued on several wrongful death lawsuits an civil rights violations. The village has settled over a million dollars in lawsuits in one year out of 2 years since the village manager been in office. The village has so many vacant properties, which goes against the residence property value an increase property taxes. The village use Tiff money to help fund people projects, this money need to be used for streets improvement. The one thing we must give the village manager credit for is the collection of the water bill money, but its more bad than good. Lets make wiser decisions.

  3. How would you be able to view this performance review that is eligible for $15,000 more? How is this $140,000 evaluated? Currently Maywood definitely represents a lot of opportunity for growth. I am just truly curious to know what a Village Manager of Maywood does when surrounding Proviso Township communities don’t have the position in place, but prosper more?
