Commissioners settle dispute with Albany Herald

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Commissioners settle a dispute with the Albany Herald. During excavation as part of this streetscape project last year, mud, water, and debris flowed into the newspaper building's basement.

The city paid more than $12,000 in cleanup costs, but the Herald said that wasn't nearly enough to cover the damage and threatened to sue.    

Tuesday night commissioners approved a plan to have Zane Grace Construction Company's insurance company cover $54,000 worth of damage.   

The city won't seek reimbursement for the $12,000 it paid.
