BONO — The city of Bono has been fined more $54,000 for violating the federal overtime-wages law and for poor record-keeping.

City Attorney Jeff Scriber told The Jonesboro Sun that the city is being fined $54,062 for violating the overtime wage laws with the police department. The city has 90 days to pay the fine.

The U.S. Department of Labor began investigating when former Police Chief Robert Jones said the city had failed to follow the law about paying overtime to city police officers. Jones made the comment after being fired for insubordination.

Mayor Billy Stephens said he'll examine the city's budget to find where to get the money to pay the fine.

The chief knew where the bodies were buried and dug up a few. It's payback! Won't the city (town) have to pay some back wages too for the overtime?
