Storm Water Fee Battle Continues In Jackson

Posted: Updated:


JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - The storm water lawsuit that the City of Jackson lost is still playing out in court, but now the battle's over how much money the city has to pay.


In last month's ruling, the Michigan Court of Appeals ordered the city to stop charging the fee and to pay the attorney fees for the three plaintiffs. In a brief filed Thursday, the city said the plaintiffs want too much money.

Jackson County is one of those plaintiffs.

Attorneys for the county say based on the case law, they are entitled to reasonable costs, not necessarily the actual amount the county paid. County attorneys want the city to pay $140,000, $20,000 more than the county was billed.

It's the court of appeals that ultimately makes the call as to what's reasonable.
