SHERIDAN, Ind. (WISH) - A Sheridan police officer filed a suit against the Town of Sheridan after he says he wasn't paid overtime wages.
Cory Monroe told the Sheridan Town Council on Thursday that he filed a lawsuit with the Indiana Ways and Claim. He says the overtime wages were not given to him for time worked from 2010 to 2012, 24-Hour News 8 news partner The Noblesville Times reports.
A jury trial was scheduled for May. A settlement can be made before then. If not, it will go to trial.
If the town has to pay Monroe for the time, there are three options.
The first is through the general fund and would require an appropriation ordinance. The second is through an issued debt levy where the town would take out a loan and then create a tax that would be used to pay back the loan. The third way would be taken from the police department's budget, which may cause a possible department reorganization.
