Grand Junction city councilors voted 5-1 Wednesday to pay $125,000 to Elizabeth Tice, the city’s management and legislative liaison, for her immediate resignation, a separation agreement that prevents Tice from filing suit against the city in the future.

Tice’s settlement comes a little more than a month after City Manager Rich Englehart resigned over what he termed “increasing conflicts” that he said made him question his ability to continue to represent the city. Englehart received nine months’ pay and accrued unused paid time off totaling more than $150,000.
