MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The chairwoman of the Vermont Liquor Control Board says it’s the board’s understanding that an overtime issue has been addressed by the Vermont Labor Relations Board.

Chairwoman Stephanie O’Brien made the comments Wednesday.

The Burlington Free Press 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.

Liquor Control Commissioner Michael 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.

Hogan is retiring this summer.
