Council Agrees to Settlement, to Release Documents to L-3

GREENVILLE - The Greenville City Council has approved a settlement agreement with L-3 Communications as they work to end the lengthy dispute.

It was one of two items on the agenda Tuesday night, which drew a large crowd of spectators, a majority of whom were L-3 employees.

After meeting in executive session for roughly 40 minutes, council returned to approve the settlement concerning the two pending lawsuits the company has filed against the city over the proposed re-plat of Majors Field Airport. A split council also approved handing over all the information the company had requested from the city under the Public Information Act.

As part of the agreement, the city will take no future action to subdivide the airport property without consulting with and obtaining the written approval of L-3.
