REMSEN, Iowa (AP) - The northwest Iowa city of Remsen has settled a lawsuit filed by its former utilities director after he was fired.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/ZW9C2G ) that the City Council last month approved paying $140,000 to Steve Pick. The federal lawsuit was dismissed on Oct. 14. As part of the agreement, the city and various officials who were named did not admit any wrongdoing.

Pick was fired in July 2012 after working for the city for 34 years. He sued the following May, alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, age discrimination and intention inflict of emotional distress. Among other allegations, Pick said in his lawsuit that several city officials had made false and defamatory statements to others in the community that Pick had stolen money from the city.
