Carlisle Borough Council has authorized a $650,000 settlement with the Pennsylvania town’s former public works director to resolve charges that his May 2014 firing was discriminatory.
The director claims Carlisle’s borough manager fired him to make way for a younger person. The former public works director is now 62. He claims the borough manager harassed him on the job prior to firing him.
The borough’s insurance policy will pay half the settlement, with borough funds covering the rest.
