A trial involving Piney Township was set to have occurred this month but was delayed.

A former employee of the Texas County Sheriff’s Department has filed a petition in small claims court seeking payment for unused vacation time.

In her claim, former Lt. Melissa Dunn stated she was due payment for 120 hours of unused vacation time — amounting to $1,822.80 — but that the county commission is refusing to pay her. Dunn also stated that precedent was set when a deputy fired in 2012 was paid for unused vacation time, according to court documents.
