City councilors indemnified Manzi in Solomon’s federal suit in September 2011, granting him personal legal protection in the suit because he acted “within the scope of his official duties” as mayor when he fired Solomon. Manzi served as mayor from 2006 to 2011.
Zanni said he will speak with City Auditor Thomas Kelly today about how to pay for the agreement.
“I want to pay it off soon so we don’t add up on interest,” said Zanni.
The City Council will hold a special meeting Thursday at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the deal.
