KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Lawyers for Salina public entities have
concluded mediation and are working toward finalizing a settlement
with the federal government over cleaning up contamination at a
former Air Force base.
Officials from the city of Salina, the Salina Airport Authority,
the Salina school district and Kansas State University-Salina filed
a federal lawsuit in Kansas City, Kan., in 2010 over cleaning up
pollution left decades ago at the former Schilling Air Force Base.
A joint status report on the lawsuit says the parties have
agreed in principle to settle the case and have signed non-binding
proposed settlement papers.
Tim Rogers, executive director of the Salina Airport Authority,
said Monday settlement negotiations are now under way and the sides have been working toward a consent decree, which would resolve the long-running case.
