Mecklenburg County Commission chair Jennifer Roberts today released a statement detailing the county's final payment to former Area Mental Health Director Grayce Crockett.
It included $31,095 of accrued vacation and sick leave. The county also paid her salary through Jan. 11, the effective date of her resignation. The remainder of the $99,330 was a negotiated amount of additional vacation and sick leave.
"I believe the decision to pay the negotiated amount of additional vacation and sick leave was appropriately made to protect Mecklenburg County's legal interest and allow the County Manager to effect an immediate change in the leadership of Area Mental Health," Roberts said.
