The City of Fife paid nearly $40,000 in accrued benefits to a Fife police lieutenant who resigned after being investigated and facing discipline for the third time in a year.

As part of a settlement agreement in February, the city paid Lt. Doug Burrus: $33,031.68 in sick leave; $3,173.20 in vacation leave; $2,873.85 for compensation time; and $813.12 in police holiday pay. The four accrued benefit payouts total $39,891.85.

The City of Fife released the figures today in response to a request from The News Tribune.
