Meredith Dolan, the former county human resources director who was under fire following a scathing grand jury report, has resigned. 

The Intelligencer reported that the Bucks County Commissioners accepted Dolan's resignation Wednesday night.

Dolan's resignation comes amid controversy.

A grand jury report released last month revealed the department had poor oversight over county health plans, the Bucks County Courier Times reported. The 76-page grand jury report revealed errors by staff caused the county to spend $450,000 more than necessary to provide benefits.

Dolan, who worked for the department since 1994, was suspended without pay just days after the release of the report.

The investigation began last year after an audit showed numerous dependents listed on Bucks County health plans were actually ineligible to receive benefits, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Was 1 of 2 Employee Benefits 4 1000 employees in Northumberland County. Where r the Hire sheets, Termination sheets that should have been generated thru each department. Our Human Resources Dept had Payroll, Insurance, Retirement & HR Director within 10 feet of each other. No one escaped our scrutiny & that included Nursing Home & Prison. Right down the hall were the Commissioners who did the hiring. Every employee hired was seen personally & explained benefits & their responsibilities. Bucks County Coms need 2 talk 2 & visits other Counties. Should never have happened here-no excuse. It can be fixed.
