MIDDLEBURY — A police officer who filed a grievance against the town claiming he was not paid for working a private duty shift on Independence Day has settled his claim.
Alton L. Cronin, a member of the Middlebury Police Union, filed the claim after he worked the shift at Quassy Amusement Park and later at Sandy Hook Beach. He claimed he was owed approximately $439.20 for a four-hour shift, which the town had not paid.
In a written statement, Cronin said town officials decided to pay him the money on Feb. 5 before a hearing with a state labor relations board scheduled for later in the month.
