According to details of the contract provided to The Signal Thursday, Rodriguez will earn a monthly salary of $10,863.

Rodriguez will also receive an automobile allowance of $486 a month and is eligible to receive reimbursement of his business-related expenses.

The contract approved Wednesday night runs until June 30, 2014.

Michael Vierra, the district’s assistant superintendent of human resources, praised Rodriguez’s professional background, which his highly based in real estate and construction management.

“He really hit the ground running for us,” Vierra said.
