BREAKING: City Council OKs settlement proposal in L-3 dispute

GREENVILLE — Following an executive session Tuesday night, the Greenville City Council returned to the council chambers in regular session and voted 6-1 to approve an ordinance for a proposed release and settlement agreement between L-3 Communications Integrated Systems and the City of Greenville.

The agreement was drafted "in order to fully resolve all disputes between the two parties," although details as to what that entails were not immediately available.

The ordinance is an attempt at closing a more than year-long dispute between the two sides concerning a proposed replat of Majors Field, the City of Greenville Municipal Airport, where L-3 is the primary and largest tenant.

There is also no word on whether the City's proposal would be accepted by L-3 and actually end the dispute.

There are still two lawsuits filed by L-3 against the City of Greenville pending — one in the 354th District Court and another in a federal court — concerning the issue. The status of those suits is also unknown as of this afternoon.

Additional details will be included in a story in Thursday's Herald-Banner.
