Council members respond to city's settlement with DePaepe

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend's City Council members spoke about the city's settlement with former police communications director Karen DePaepe's settlement with the city. It will cost the city $235,000, but it did not admit to any wrongdoing.

Council members say settlements like these are always a concern for the city, especially when they involve taxpayer dollars.

The city of South Bend has paid approximately $1 million so far in the South Bend police tapes scandal.

"Anytime those settlements are out there like that, all settlements are concerns," says council President, Oliver Davis.  

The city still faces one lawsuit regarding the tapes.
