Frankfort Reaches $254K Settlement with Officer

A Benzie County community settled a long-running dispute with a police officer.

Frankfort has agreed to pay Tim Cavric $254,000 in settlement money.

Back in 2006, Officer Cavric filed a grievance against Frankfort after they laid him off and then hired a new officer without first offering him the job.

A legal battle resulted in him being rehired in 2012, but a dispute over back pay and benefits lingered.

Mayor Bob Johnson says Monday’s agreement puts all legal matters to rest.
