Description

The Virginian-Pilot conducted an investigation concerning Portsmouth city managers' secret perks. Even in lean years, the city council has paid lucrative bonuses and doesn't think taxpayers needed to know. The bonuses have been so secret that the city failed to disclose a $14,097 retirement payment that City Manager V. Wayne Orton received this fiscal year when The Virginian-Pilot and The Ledger-Star made an initial inquiry.
