Interactive: New HACLA Data Shows $870k in Bonuses



From 2007 to 2010, nearly $870,000 in incentive bonuses were distributed to employees of the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, or HACLA, according to a new batch of public records obtained by SoCal Connected.

The data shows which employees received bonuses and how much. HACLA Chief Operating Officer Ken Simmons received the biggest bonuses, earning $55,000 since joining the agency in 2008.

Simmons served as interim CEO after former chief Rudolf Montiel was fired in March. Simmons himself stepped down from the top spot late last year when a SoCal investigation revealed that questionable spending ran deeper in the organization than initially thought.

Socal Connected filed its first request for the bonus information in November 2011. Those documents were not released until earlier this month.
