Bucks official resigns after investigation

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -

The resignation of Meredith Dolan as Bucks County's human resources director was accepted by county commissioners Wednesday night.

The resignation was effective July 10.

Dolan had been suspended on June 25 after a grand jury report called into question some of her department's practices.

Travis Monroe, deputy human resources director, has been heading the department since Dolan's departure.

Spokesman Chris Edward said the county is working on filling the director position and commissioners may have an update at their next meeting on July 30.

Dolans was suspended  after a grand jury report said nearly a half million dollars of taxpayers' money had been wasted.

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