After 15 months of legalities, motions, and mediation as part of a civil lawsuit between Charles City County and Waste Management, both parties agreed to a $1.5 million settlement.
Charles City board of supervisor chairman Gilbert Smith announced the settlement during the Jan. 27 regular monthly meeting.
“I’m pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with Waste Management,” said Smith. “We will receive $1.5 million over the next five and a half years.”
“I’m delighted with the work that our county attorney Randy Boyd did,” chimed in District 2 representative Bill Coada.
