The Conway City Council took no action regarding a possible settlement in a lawsuit against the city after City Attorney Chuck Clawson said there was a new development in the case.
"We've got more discovery to do," Clawson told aldermen during a special called meeting Monday.
The Linn Trust filed suit against the city over the 6th Street Overpass Project.
"It's one of the few cases we have pending," Clawson said. "Litigation has been progressing for the last few years."
Clawson said attorneys for the Linn Trust contacted him late Sunday to say the client plans to increase the damages after recent flooding further damaged the property. However, Clawson said that after speaking with the attorney, he believed the lawsuit could be settled by the city offering an additional $360,000. The city already paid roughly $248,000, he said.
Because the city hasn't had a chance to inspect the property to see if additional damages were done, Alderman David Grimes suggested the city wait to make a decision.
"I suggest we let the judge settle it," he said.
Clawson said he has requested a continuance in the case in order to investigate the new claims.
