DeForest police chief offered severance package

DEFOREST (WKOW) -- The Deforest village board met in closed session Monday night to put together a severance package for police chief Dan Furseth.

Following the discovery last month of a 10-year old video in which Furseth was seen and heard making disparaging remarks about a group of black men entering a restaurant, Furseth was suspended with pay. 

Village President Judd Blau confirmed the severance package was authorized, but gave no details as to what it contained. 

He said that once the official severance package is offered,  it was up to Furseth to accept or reject it.
