Fairfield Wants Civic Center to Pay Lawsuit Settlement

The Fairfield City Council wants the city's Civic Center Authority to repay the cost of a lawsuit settlement. The city settled a lawsuit with Evans Meats, Inc. of Birmingham in December for $24,758, said Mayor Kenneth Coachman. The city and former clerk Ryan Rancher were named as defendants in the lawsuit, which was filed in Jefferson County District Court in July 2008.
The lawsuit claimed a breach of contract. Evans Meats claimed the city, under Rancher, guaranteed payment for goods and meat products. However, the council voted 4-2 to have the Civic Center Authority repay settlement money, which council members said is coming from the city's general fund.
