TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Taos is dishing out a total of more than $100,000 to former city employees because of discrimination allegations.

According to Taos News, the town struck a $60,000 deal with former town attorney Brian James who had been replaced immediately after raising concerns about Dan Barrone serving as mayor while holding a county commission seat.

The town also gave former town planner Rudy Pereas $35,000 to drop his age discrimination claims.

Shirley Lujan, a former dispatcher, received $24,000 for similar reasons.
