Apopka’s CAO severance pay doubles other cities, despite state law cap

WFTV uncovered more details about generous contracts for Apopka city employees.

In Mayor John Land’s final hours in office he gave nine employees 20 weeks of severance pay and the city’s chief administrative officer signed off on those contracts.
