CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- The legal fight between Clay County's school board and its superintendent appears to be over.

Late today, both sides announced a resolution. The fight started when school board members made changes to job descriptions.

School superintendent Charles Van Zant said the school board couldn't do that and filed a lawsuit. As part of the agreement, both the superintendent and board members will follow the state statute that establishes their roles. It says it was in the best interest of tax payers.

Action News has learned taxpayers will still foot the bill for legal fees, roughly $24,000. The agreement will be voted on at the school board meeting on Thursday.

"It says it was in the best interest of tax payers." When has a politician ever taken the "best interest" of the tax payers into account?
