YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A settlement has been reached in a nearly two-year-old court case claiming Youngstown illegally used water and wastewater money for economic development.
The case was filed by Boardman’s Kathy Miller.
Some of the details were released as a part of Wednesday’s City Council agenda because council must approve the settlement.
The city has agreed to either issue credits to its customers or to transfer $1.45 million into the water fund. Any future water grants will be subject to a written policy, though the details of that policy haven’t been released to WKBN.
Neither side would comment on the settlement.
