Council takes up $450,000 settlement for Plainfield firefighter at Monday's meeting

Lotta moola in settlement Council
takes up Monday evening.
Plainfield City Council is set to take up a $450,000 settlement with a Plainfield firefighter at Monday night's business meeting.

The resolution (R 185-18) does not specify the nature of the matter, although it does seems it had moved along a fair distance, since the resolution metnions "discovery", meaning that both sides had to divulge matters that would be brought up at a potential trial.

As in all NJ governmental settlements, the entity (in this case, the City of Plainfield) does not admit any wrongdoing.

What the public thinks about all this may be a different matter.

City Council meets at 8:00 PM in the Council Chamber / Courthouse at Watchung Avenue and East 4th Street. Parking is available on the street and in the lot across from Police Headquarters.
