Atkins-Grad Demands Money in Exchange for Resignation


By: Sharon Aron Baron

City Commissioner Patte Atkins-Grad handed in her resignation to city hall on Wednesday afternoon with the stipulation that she will be reimbursed $8,000 before she leaves.

According to Tamarac City Attorney Jacob Horowitz, Atkins-Grad wants to be reimbursed her legal fees and won’t resign until she receives them.  The city commission will meet tonight and vote to do so.  Paying her the money and having her resign will save the city the cost of two elections.

The public is invited to attend the public portion of the meeting at 6:30-7:00 p.m. Thursday evening after the closed door session.
