Agreement Reached Between CWLP and Chatham
Agreement Reached Between CWLP and Chatham

Springfield alderman ok’d a tentative deal with Chatham to forgo legal wrangling with the village agreeing to pay to the city a half-million dollars for terminating their contract with Springfield’s utility.  Springfield mayor Mike Houston says the agreement is reasonable and says both the city and Chatham can avoid “furhter legal action”.

The village of Chatham will receive a 99-year lease of ground owned by the city of Springfield where their new water pump station sits at a cost of $200,000.

“The settlement is a reasonable and prudent approach for the City and Village to avoid both the risk and cost of further legal action” the mayor said via a press release.
