The City of Buckhannon has settled a lawsuit with a former Buckhannon Police Officer.

City Administrator Michael Doss said the city will pay former K-9 officer Loralie Hissam $15,000.

Hissam filed a lawsuit claiming she wasn't paid for the dog's care during off-duty hours.

Doss said city council has approved the settlement.

Hissam resigned in 2011.

There are no plans to reinstate the department's K-9 program.
