Background Discussion

In efforts to resolve this litigation amicably, on September 12, 2012 Manatee County went to mediation with URS Corp. The mediation resulted in an impasse. On October 11, 2012, Manatee County sent to URS Corp. its settlement offer which was approved by the Board of County Commissioners at its meeting October 9, 2012. URS Corp. rejected that offer. Now, in a proposal for settlement dated February 11, 2013, Plaintiff URS Corp. has offered to Manatee County a grand total of $20,000.00 as settlement to this litigation.  It is the County Attorney's Office recommendation that the Board reject the Plaintiff's offer of settlement.
