Mount Joy Borough Council on Monday approved a $900,000 settlement agreement for the family of a man who died in 2010 after attempts to subdue him included repeated discharges from a police officer’s Taser.
The settlement will be paid to the family of Robert A. Neill Jr. by the borough’s insurance carrier, according to borough officials.
The borough’s insurance company recommended the settlement, according to a one-paragraph statement read by council President Chris Metzler.
The insurance company was not identified, and no other comments were made by members of council.
