RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - New Mayor Levar Stoney’s administration will have to budget for severance payments for four high-level members of former Mayor Dwight C. Jones‘ staff.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2iY9QBg) that Jones authorized $166,000 in severance payments before he left office at the end of December. Stoney’s press secretary, Jim Nolan, says the expenditure is “unfortunate,” but that the new administration “will make it work.”

Jones‘ press secretary, Tammy Hawley, will receive $63,000. His executive assistant, Cheryl Ivey Green, will receive $49,000. His senior policy adviser and chief of staff, Mark Kronenthal, will receive $19,000. His deputy chief of staff, Don Mark, will receive $35,000.

Nolan says the payments will be included in the city’s next pay cycle.

Jones didn’t respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
