UPDATE: City council approves lawsuit settlement with current, former Chattanooga officers
UPDATE: In a unanimous vote, the Chattanooga City Council voted to reach a settlement deal with 31 current and former city police officers who filed a class action lawsuit, after they say they didn't receive pay raises put in place by the previous police administration.
The total owed is $454,405.50.
According to city attorney Phil Noblett, each individual will receive a different amount.
"I think the most expensive I think had was $77,000,” Noblett said.
The three Chattanooga Police Officers who initially filed the suit say they were owed back pay and retirement.
According to the complaint, six of the officers will receive a combined total of $252,000, leaving the rest for the other 25 involved.
"And those determinations had to be made by looking at what the pay range was during an eight or nine year period,” Noblett said.
One of the names on the list is current Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy.
According to Noblett, Chief Roddy could receive around $500 from the settlement.
Councilmen Ken Smith tells Channel 3, " I’m happy to finally come to a resolution in this case that stems from promises made back in 2010, regarding pay raises for certain rankings of CPD officers."
According to Noblett, he says the settlement should be paid off within the next couple of weeks.
