Portsmouth mayor proposes new separation agreement for police chief
The Associated Press
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — The mayor of Portsmouth says he is going to ask City Council to authorize the Police Commission to work on a new separation agreement that would pay its police chief six months severance as long as he agrees to retire on Nov.1.
Chief Stephen DuBois announced in September that he was resigning. City Council voted to postpone any action on a previous separation agreement that would have paid him three months severance and have him resign in January.
The Portsmouth Herald reports Mayor Robert Lister's motion now calls for the Commission to work with a negotiator to reach a proposed deal. If the Council approves the deal Monday, the Commission would then have to approve it the following day.
DuBois could not immediately be reached for comment.
