The Westbrook City Council last week approved a $25,000 settlement with Fire Chief Andy Turcotte and Deputy Chief Steven Sloan to settle a lawsuit the chiefs brought against the city earlier this year. If approved at second reading, the chiefs would get a combined $25,000. The amount allotted to each chief was incorrect in last week’s American Journal.
Jim Violette, a candidate for the Ward 5 Westbrook School Committee seat, lives on Crestwood Street and obtained a degree in business administration from the University of Maine. The information was incorrect in the Sept. 27 issue of the American Journal.
