Fort Worth says it is going to deduct thousands of dollars from the final check due to fired Aviation Director Bill Welstead who was sacked in September when the city reported some mis-behavior with a city-owned vehicle, a city-issued credit card.

Now, the city says the mis-appropriated funds amount to $43,000 which City Hall plans to with-hold from payment for Welstead's accrued vacation.

At Welstead's pay rate, the $43,000 amount to about 15 weeks' pay
