MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Liquor Control Board has met for more than two hours in executive session following reports that the department’s director of enforcement claimed undocumented overtime.

The four-member board met Tuesday with the Liquor Control Department’s commissioner regarding “employment matters.” The board said it was still reviewing this matter and was not prepared to make any statements.

The Burlington Free Press has reported that William Goggins, the department’s director of education, licensing and enforcement, has received more than $162,000 in overtime pay over more than 14 years without documenting work or hours.

Commissioner Michael J. Hogan has said he and Goggins had a private unwritten overtime agreement which allowed Goggins to claim up to 10 additional hours each week for phone calls, emails, and meetings after regular business hours.
