Police service board chairman John Sutton said “an offer was made” and the board “debated its merits. “We’re always open to anything.”
Sutton said the offer came from the defence during a meeting two weeks ago between the lawyers where an “overture” was made that was presented to the board.
Sutton said the board’s decision to accept the offer was “a business decision.”
He estimated it would have cost in excess of $240,000 to litigate the case.
A financial settlement of $110,000, which works out to one year’s pay, plus $1,300 owed in stat time that Sutton said the service is legally obligated to pay, was agreed to.
“This allows both parties to move on,” Sutton said.
