Former Bellevue Police Chief John Stacey wants the city to pay him more than $23,000 in a retirement dispute.
Stacey received a flat payment for his unused sick leave when he retired last year. In a claim filed last month, he said the city calculated the amount incorrectly.
If his claim is upheld, it would increase his retirement benefit.
Stacey is seeking an additional $23,674.80 for 480 hours of unused sick leave. The City Council is set to vote Monday on whether to approve the claim.
The city attorney has recommended denial.
Last year, Stacey received a flat sum of $1,113,956.90 instead of his pension, which would have been about $60,000 annually.
He received an additional $196,032.86 for almost 4,000 unused hours of vacation time.
The current dispute is over how the city capped his unused sick time.
Stacey had accumulated 3,993 hours of unused sick time. The city says he can receive half his unused time, up to 960 hours. Stacey is challenging the city's interpretation of the benefits policy. He contends the cap should be 1,440 hours.
The city has already paid him $47,531.04 for unused sick time. He is seeking compensation for an additional 480 hours.
Stacey, a longtime Bellevue public servant, retired in June 2012 amid controversy.
He had been suspended for allegedly making an inappropriate comment to a young teenage girl at a fire station.
The World-Herald also revealed that he took several taxpayer-funded trips that overlapped with those of a friend, Gretna City Administrator Colleen Lawry, who later was convicted of stealing from the City of Gretna.
He was also charged with a misdemeanor after he lent Lawry his gun.
A jury acquitted Stacey earlier this year on the gun charge.
