Youngstown reaches settlement in water lawsuit

The city has agreed to either issue credits to its customers or to transfer $1.45 million into the water fund

Youngstown Water Department employees are charged with false certifications.

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.
