Miller stepped away from retirement to guide Longmont’s public housing authority out of scandal. The former executive director of Longmont Housing Authority, Michael Reis, was asked to resign in February after the LHA board chairman was presented with “disappointing” photos that mocked warrantless searches of affordable housing.

As 9NEWS has reported, the Longmont Housing Authority invited officers to search affordable housing units without warrants because of concerns about drug use.

While speaking to Longmont City Council Members Monday, LHA Board Chairman Wendell Pickett implied Miller would “help (them) through this period” of transition between permanent directors.

Miller and LHA negotiated an undisclosed salary.
