NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Jill McGlone , the Community Services Board member who was paid 12 years for not showing up to work, applied for unemployment benefits.
McGlone received $319,000 during the period of time when she wasn't working, and applied for unemployment benefits after she was terminated when the situation was discovered.
The State Unemployment Compensation Board decided under the circumstances, McGlone is not eligible for benefits.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
