Lawyers representing the Lawrence County (Alabama) Commission have drafted a proposed settlement agreement that will require the commission to return $300,000 to the solid waste fund during a four-year period.
The $75,000 annual payments would come out of the county’s general fund and would be placed in the Lawrence County Solid Waste Account. The first transfer, which is $90,000, would include attorney fees for the plaintiff.
