The city of Frostproof has a hot-to-trot city manager, according to allegations made by a former assistant city manager. The manager apparently sexually harassed her on a business trip to Tampa.

After she complained, the manager and the city gave her the cold shoulder by suspending her, cutting her pay, changing her title and even trying to have her arrested. Then, while she was out on medical leave, the city eliminated her position. Tired of the frosty treatment, she sued.

But before the case went to court, both sides cooled off and reached a settlement. Frostproof admitted no wrongdoing but did fork over $340,000 in cold cash.
