Did the Board of Commissioners plan to pay the County Health Officer $8 million or $4 million?

No, this is false. The Health Officer can demand anything she wants: it does not mean she can have it.

The Board of Commissioners only voted to pay the Health Officer $0. The Board of Commissioners settled the Health Officer’s lawsuit, and no money was paid to her.

The only issue remaining is the Health Officer’s claim for attorney fees, which will be decided by a court later.
