Leelanau County sheriff deputies' settlement: $625,000

By Art Bukowski

SUTTONS BAY — Leelanau County officials agreed to settle a long-running, acrimonious lawsuit filed by a group of sheriff’s deputies against the former sheriff and undersheriff for $625,000.

The number was revealed in a newly released settlement agreement.

Officials previously said the county’s insurance company would cover the cost, though insurance premiums are likely to rise.

More details will appear in Friday’s print and online editions of the Record-Eagle.
