REQUEST

 City Manager requesting the Mayor and City Council to authorize a settlement offer to be paid by the City’s insurance company in the amount of $2,000.00 in the case of Collette Rowley vs Clint Johnson.

 PROPOSED

 This request is needed at this time to settle the above referenced litigation prior to its February trial date.

 CONSIDERATIONS

 The City’s insurance company is recommending settlement reasoning that the cost to go to court would far exceed the settlement

 On June 24, 2015 the plaintiff and Mayor Johnson got into an altercation that resulted plaintiff filing a suit against Mayor Johnson alleging “assault” and “slander” and the plaintiff demanding damages in the amount of $15,000.00.

 The case is set for trial in February with the plaintiff agreeing to a $2,000.00 settlement.

 COST/FUNDING

 $2,000.00 from the General Fund.

 RECOMMENDATION

 It is the recommendation to authorize acceptance of the settlement agreement and authorize the City Manager execute the official release documents with the approval from the City Attorney.
