SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Sioux City is paying up, more a million dollars, to a construction contractor that worked on upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant.
During construction, disputes over time extensions and change orders arose between the city and Foley Company.
As the $72-million project bloomed to close to $80-million, city leaders stopped approving payment to Foley.
Foley sued the city, and a mediator determined Sioux City owes Foley $1.5 million.
"It's not where I want it to be but I think it's a fair settlement and it gets us behind us and moves on. All that happened long before I was there, but it doesn't matter. It's just time to move on," said Scott.
City leaders will be asked to approve the payment to Foley at their council meeting on Monday.
