Are you really going to hire him back as a consultant? Talk about double dipping! You boosted his pension by $10,000 per year the last time he retired, was hired as a consultant and then came back. This is the opportunity to put your money (or should I say "our" money) where your mouth is. Eliminate the position and save the taxpayers over $100,000 per year. You have a commissioner and each sub-agency has superintendants and foremen who know how to do their jobs. This is the perfect opportunity for you to realize drastic cost cutting can't and shouldn't be trusted because you've never been a man of your word and never will be.
