Settlement with Town of Hamburg and Mikac near
“An accord has been reached and the terms of the deal are confidential,” said Attorney David B. Cotter.
Cotter said he is awaiting for paperwork from the Town of Hamburg, and it will be up to the town board to vote on whether to approve the agreement.
The next Hamburg Town Board meeting is Monday, June 11, with a work session at 6 p.m., followed by the regular meeting at 7 p.m.
Mikac has been accused of violating departmental rules and regulations in regards to how he dealt with a female recruit to the Town of Hamburg Police Department.
Attorney Craig Bucki, who is representing the town in this case, said at this time the case continues to be adjourned “until further notice.”
He said testimony was held April 26 and 27, as well as May 7, 30 and 31. Around lunchtime on May 31, the case was adjourned and that the two sides are continuing to work on a settlement.
“We had some productive discussions with Mikac,” Bucki said, adding “We do not have any hearings scheduled.”
Bucki said an agreement is not in place, and that it would have to be agreed upon by Police Chief Michael Williams and then the Hamburg Town Board.
“We’re working on it,” Bucki said.
