GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council is scheduled to receive an update today concerning the pending litigation between L-3 and the City of Greenville.

No action is expected following the special called session, starting at 5:15 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 3121 Washington Street. There is only one item on the agenda, an executive session under Section 551.071 (1) - L-3 Communications vs. City of Greenville Lawsuit and Settlement.

Mayor Steve Reid said he intends to brief the Council on the status of negotiations involving the settlement of the remaining suit filed by the company against the city.

Although there is an option for the Council to return to open session and take a vote following the executive session, Reid said he does not anticipate any action being taken.

The Council voted unanimously July 31 to propose a settlement agreement with L-3 Communications, in an effort to conclude the legal dispute between the two sides.
