"It's best to have one voice when you're involved in litigation," she said.
Charnock now serves as public relations director for the Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority.
Brown said the fund was definitely not used for any personal trips. Money from the fund has been used to pay for three trips since 2007, according to documents provided by the county.
The first was on Aug. 8, 2007, to Washington, D.C. for a visit with the late Sen. Robert C. Byrd.
The documents do not indicate how many people made the trip, but a total of $1,860 was spent and a $1.5 million federal grant was secured, Brown said.
Another trip occurred on May 14, 2009, when officials traveled to Washington, D.C. to testify about an incident at the Bayer CropScience Plant. This trip cost a total of $3,518.
An explosion at the Institute plant in August 2008 killed two workers.
Eight people, including Charnock and Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper, made that trip. The fund was used to pay for seven hotel rooms at $359 each, according to the documents. Carper did not use money from the fund to pay for his room.
All but Carper also received $128 per day for meals and other expenses during the trip, and two people were paid gas money.
A trip to Dayton, Ohio, on Aug. 24, 2009, cost the Metro 911 Center $748. Brown believes this trip was related to a ham radio conference.
"They were checking out new equipment to keep up with what's new," Brown said.
The fund also has been used to pay for meals during conferences and for cubicles at the 911 Center, according to the documents.
Carper reimbursed the fund $7 for a sandwich eaten during a luncheon at which the Bayer CropScience plant was discussed, the documents show.
Wilson also alleges that her duties have been stripped without due cause and she has been exiled to a data entry job at the county courthouse.
Brown said she now work for the Office of Emergency Services at the courthouse and her responsibilities include some data entry, but she also has communications duties to improve the operations at the center.
However, she is no longer training dispatchers.
"But her duties are similar to what she was doing," Brown said.
