County votes to settle lawsuit with former HR director

“Do we ever look to see if anyone else would want this contract, or do we just give it to him automatically every year?” Commissioner Lynn Gothard asked.

“I don’t think anyone else would work for that cheap,” Commissioner Joel Pate said, jokingly.

Brock noted that Dr. Ward is also Chief of Staff for Northwest Florida Community Hospital.

“Once again we’re coming to the board and only have had something for two minutes and are having to vote on it,” Gothard said.

“This is something that should have been handled in November,” Abbott said.

Corbin said he had only received notice of the contract that morning, just prior to the board’s special meeting.

“I will send a memo to all staff informing them that in the future, if something isn’t turned in on time, it won’t be added to the agenda,” Corbin said.
