County Commissioners must decide on fired Yakima Sheriff's Deputy

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA -  Yakima County Commissioners met this afternoon in an executive session to discuss what to do about an arbitrator's ruling regarding a fired Yakima Sheriff's Deputy.     

The arbitrator says the county can either reinstate Jan Bartleson, or pay her more than four years in back pay, which amounts to $250,000.     

County Commissioner Ron Gamache says it will probably be at least two weeks before they make a decision and that very well could mean another appeal.
