OPINION: Was it a $25,000 fabrication?

by Jack McCourt of Mason City –

If I read the Globe correctly, a city employee said the city’s insurance paid the $95,000 to Maria Ohl to settle her case, and it didn’t cost the taxpayers.

If I’m not wrong, the city’s insurance has a $25,000 deductible.  Which means the taxpayers paid the first $25,000.

If she was on paid leave until it was over.  Look what she got plus if a person was hired to take her place.  Add up the total cost.

I have been told that a big case against the city is coming up, which will cost real big money!

Even if Chief Lashbrook was right, his work has gotten a church $85,000, Ohl $95,000 and he still has his job?

Have we still got the same insurance company?  If we do, I bet the premium has really went up!
