In a settlement agreement signed by former City Administrator Ryan Hunt and the Mayor and Board of Aldermen on February 24, 2020, Hunt was awarded $295,000 and received transfer of title for a City truck previously assigned to Hunt for use during his employment.
The settlement includes $95,000 in alleged lost wages, $155,000 for alleged personal injury, and $45,000 for attorneys’ fees, payable to Hunt’s attorneys White Graham Buckley & Carr LLC. The City also agreed to transfer title for the pickup truck and ensure the vehicle is returned in the condition it was in before being stolen from Hunt’s driveway and later recovered.
The agreement also stipulates that Hunt’s employment record be amended to reflect Hunt voluntarily resigned from the position and not terminated by the City, stating he is eligible for re-employment.
Reached for comment, Mayor Mike Todd and the City of Grain Valley declined to comment on the matter. Hunt did not respond to a request for comment.
