Saint Jo to continues health insurance for officer who resigned

In a settlement agreement with its former police officer the City of Saint Jo has agreed to continue her health insurance coverage as part of the separation package.
Details were obtained concerning former Saint Jo police officer Lindsey Montgomery’s separation agreement.
The City of Saint Jo on Wednesday complied with the Bowie News’ Freedom of Information (FOI) request for the documentation.
Her resignation occured two weeks ago as the city faced possible litigation and a work force grievance regarding her request for light-duty during the remainder of her pregnancy.
Saint Jo Police Chief Tyler Roy and city officials denied Montgomery’s request.
Montgomery officially submitted a letter of resignation on Dec. 14, hours before the last regularly scheduled council meeting. City officials had a near 40-minute executive session to discuss Montgomery’s employment.
At the same meeting, Alderpersons accepted a letter of resignation from Michael Montgomery, Lindsey’s husband – which has brought the Saint Jo police force down to one full-time position with Chief Roy.
