Fruitland Park commissioners meet to discuss city manager's future



Fruitland Park commissioners met Thursday to discuss giving severance pay to the suspended city manager.

The State Attorney’s office is currently reviewing a complaint that Ralph Bower committed sexual battery on a female city employee.

Bowers is still on paid administrative leave, but offered to step down if the city agrees to a severance package.

He wants two-month’s salary, his Christmas bonus and compensation for his unused vacation time.
