TAXPAYERS HIT WITH LAW BILL OF $6,902

Taxpayers will foot a $6,902 bill from the county school district's labor law firm for its opinion that the School Board didn't have the authority to rewrite the job description for a director's position. Superintendent Charlie Van Zant Jr. asked for the opinion from Fowler White, which has charged the district $87,074 for its work on various matters from July 1, 2012-March 31. Van Zant has hired a private attorney to sue the board over the rewrite. Taxpayers will have to pay legal fees for Van Zant and the board's roles in the suit, which could cost more than $100,000.
