LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock City Council finalized a severance package with former City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld Thursday evening.

Council voted unanimously to grant Dumbauld a settlement of more than $350,000.

Mayor Glen Robertson says the package settles all money owed and releases both sides from any further action.

Dumbauld was fired by a 4-3 vote in July after a dispute with councilman Victor Hernandez. She was elected city manager in September 2005.

The council is now considering how to move forward in the search for her replacement.

They will be considering a number of options, including whether to use city staff or an outside firm to lead the search.
