Bucks County official suspended pending investigation

LEVITTOWN, Pa. - A Bucks County official has been suspended after a report uncovered nearly a half-million dollars of taxpayers' money was wasted.

The Bucks County Office of Public Information said county Human Resources Director Meredith Dolan was suspended Wednesday after a grand jury report was released.

The report said hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars were wasted "mostly by inefficient administration of the county benefit plan," Dolan said.

The report uncovered nearly $500,000 the county had paid for health insurance premiums to cover some employees' ex-spouses and ineligible relatives.

County commissioners say they're still investigating and that Dolan's future with the county is not clear.
