County 911 Director Got Paid Leave

Kootenai County placed a 911 Operations Manager on paid leave for more than a year before County Commissioners voted to pay her $60,000 as part of a confidential settlement agreement. Amber Schafer filed a tort claim seeking more than $1 million in damages in March 2013 -- a year after she was placed on paid leave while the county investigated "alleged personnel violations," according to the claim. In December 2013, about a year and seven months after she was placed on leave, County Commissioners agreed to pay her $60,000, in addition to a $12,500 cash liquidation of her VEBA employee benefits account, and an undisclosed amount of accrued vacation pay/Taryn Thompson, Coeur d'Alene Press.
