McLennan Co. leaders deciding where settlement payout will come from

MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

Now that a discrimination lawsuit is settled, McLennan County leaders are figuring out where the money to pay the plaintiffs will come from.  

Nine former McLennan County deputies are getting $2 million.  Of that, the county is responsible for $575,000.  McLennan County Auditor Stan Chambers says there is money in the budget to cover the payout.  However, he doesn't know which department the money will come from.

Chambers also says it will require a budget amendment.  A final proposal is expected to be voted on by commissioners next week.
