Aurora Council OKs four-year contracts for DePiero, Bane

Aurora City Council has approved four-year employment contracts with Law Director Dean DePiero and Economic Development Director Holly Harris Bane.

Both contracts run through Dec. 31, 2025. DePiero’s reappointment was confirmed by Council on Jan. 10 and Bane’s reappointment was confirmed Jan. 24.

Dean Dipiero

DePiero’s base salary through Dec. 31, 2022 will be $151,425, payable in bi-weekly installments. He will spend between 20 and 25 hours per week handling Aurora city business, and must be available for calls and consultation at other times.

The contract allows him to delegate some of the salaried duties to named or appointed assistants who would be compensated as outside counsel.

Some legal services, including union negotiations and unique or complex legal matters, will be provided under a separate contract with DePiero’s law firm – McDonald Hopkins LLC – or another qualified law firm.

Mayor Ann Womer Benjamin said DePiero is beginning his ninth year as law director, and soon will be recognized as one of the Cleveland area’s notable lawyers by Crane’s Cleveland Business.

DePiero will be provided the same medical, dental, vision and life insurance and other benefits to which other city employees are entitled, including paid vacation.

Holly Harris Bane

Bane’s base salary for the four-year period will be $50,428 per year, payable in bi-weekly installments. She will spend between 25 and 29 hours per week on city business.

“Holly has done a tremendous job in the nearly two years she has held the position,” noted Womer Benjamin. She was appointed to the post in March 2020 after the death of Jack Burge.
