Jones’ severance package: $263,599

Mecklenburg County has agreed to pay former County Manager Harry Jones a severance package totaling $263,599.46, a county spokesman said Tuesday.

Details of the package were not immediately available.

Under his contract, Jones will receive six months’ salary and benefits as part of a severance package because the termination was made without cause.

His contract stipulated that Jones served “at the pleasure of the Board of County Commissioners.” The contract gave the board the right to “terminate the services of (Jones) at any time.”

It also allowed Jones to be paid for unused leave.

Jones’ base salary was $246,138. His total compensation was $297,795 for the past year.

The commission fired Jones two weeks ago.
