A tentative severance agreement between the city of Minneapolis and former police chief Janeé Harteau would pay her $182,876 plus a year's worth of medical and dental insurance coverage.
Harteau was forced to resign July 21, nearly a week after the police shooting of Justine Ruszczyk.
Mayor Betsy Hodges said that was not the only reason she asked the chief to step down. The two had clashed in the past. Recently, Hodges blocked one of Harteau's high-profile personnel moves. A series of text messages between them illustrated tension between the two leaders.
Harteau told MPR News last month she was caught off guard by the mayor's decision, but she did not criticize Hodges.

The proposed agreement includes a clause preventing Harteau from disparaging the city and vice versa.
Harteau's second term as chief was supposed to have expired in January of 2019. She recently announced she's starting her own consulting firm.
The City Council will take up the agreement in committee in a few weeks.
