County Reaches Settlement with Former Deputy

The Macon County Commissioners reached an agreement (vote 4-1) with former deputy Craig Stahl on a Fair Labor Standards Act and North Carolina Wage and Hour Act claim against Macon County and the Macon County Sheriff. The agreement reached is to pay Stahl $41,962.68 in wages, out of which Stahl is expected to pay his share of taxes and attorney fees. the net payout for the county is $50,733.00 because they will pay their share of taxes, retirement, 401K, etc. 

A full video of the segment is posted below.

Thank You to the people who have been sending in donations and those businesses who are underwriting coverage of news and events. You have kept Macon Media online. You have made it possible for Macon Media to begin purchasing state of the art equipment and begin work on building a real website with features not employed by any local news outlets.

You can find out more information on how to do that and some of what I plan to accomplish if I reach certain levels of funding at
