NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — There’s conflict in the New Hanover County commission yet again.

The clerk of the board, Sheila Schult, put in her resignation Monday after she says commissioners requested it.

The board released an announcement saying they have received Schult’s resignation after “a majority had concerns with the clerk’s ability to serve the board.”

But, Schult said she has not been given any information about these concerns.

    The terms of Schult’s contract call for her to stay on the county’s pay roll for the next six months while collecting her annual salary of $76,741. In addition, Schult will also continue to collect her yearly in county auto allowance of $2,700 a year. Sounds like she got the better deal. Free vacation.

    A clerk making over $76k with a car allowance? That’s more than most employees make including police and fire!
