Hubbard County Coordinator Jack Paul has been suspended without pay for a month.

The suspension, actually 20 compensable working days, begins Aug. 5. Paul met behind closed doors for several hours Wednesday afternoon with the county board.

An outside investigator found violations of the state's data privacy act.

Paul allegedly leaked information about Auditor Pam Heeren's private evaluation to her staff while she was on vacation.

Heeren filed a grievance, prompting the investigation.

Because it is a personnel matter, county personnel declined further comment.
