From Staff Reports

The Buncombe County Board of Commissioners on Nov. 20 agreed unanimously to accept a $40,000 settlement from former county employee Michael Greene.

The payment provides relief sought in the county’s civil lawsuit against Greene and his mother, former County Manager Wanda Greene.

“The settlement would allow the county to pursue legal action against Greene for additional damages that may be discovered in the future,” the Asheville Citizen Times noted.

Federal prosecutors charged Michael Greene in April with charging about $7,500 in personal purchases to his county-issued purchase card. 

Michael Greene misspent about $38,000 of county funds, according to Ron Payne, the county’s outside attorney handling civil lawsuits against former staffers who have been indicted as part of an ongoing federal corruption probe.
