Powell named interim director at EOPA
Rather than being moved into that slot, longtime Deputy Director Powell was told to report to the four-member management team, circumstances of whose appointments are in dispute.
Mr. Powell did not speak during the meeting, aside from commenting on routine EOPA matters.
After Mr. Gould's remarks, board member Norman Bell made the motion to name Mr. Powell as interim director.
Powell] should be the individual that we should put at the forefront," Mr. Bell said.

James Powell, EOPA's interim executive director, said the agency is doing its best but is limited by its budget. He said its six intake workers see at least 80 to 100 clients a day.
Mr. Powell said he discourages people lining up outside in the mornings and he advised people to just keep calling.
"They have to keep trying," he said. "I guess some people have stayed on the phone for two or three hours, just redialing."
He said the state mandates that they use the hot-line system to schedule appointments.

James Powell will step down ..., 10 Jan 2013 [cached]
James Powell will step down in June as head of the Economic Opportunity Planning Association of Greater Toledo. His departure will give the embattled agency that runs Lucas County's Head Start program a much-needed chance to make a fresh start.
Mr. Powell has been EOPA's chief executive officer since 2009. He was deputy director of the agency from 2001 to 2008.
But Mr. Powell didn't go easily. The board offered a $50,000 severance package. Internal documents report that he wanted an additional $40,000 to $50,000 to step aside - outrageous, if true, given the organization's mission.
Fortunately the board, which had been split on whether he should be replaced, had enough. Mr. Powell will step down no later than June 30, apparently without a severance package.
EOPA could know in a matter of days whether it has retained the Head Start grant. However that federal decision turns out, the task of finding Mr. Powell's replacement should begin immediately.
