City of Sullivan Awarded $325,000 In Settlement

(SULLIVAN) – The City of Sullivan has settled a lawsuit against Floyd-Hunter Environmental, LLP for $325,000.

Floyd-Hunter had ongoing contractual agreements with the city since 2006 for operating and managing the city’s wastewater treatment plant, gravity sewer collection lines, and sewage lift stations.

The court case resulted in a claim for breach of contract and negligent services provided.

The city claims the acts and omissions of Floyd-Hunter resulted in the city being cited by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management for violating environmental rules which were eventually corrected by the City.

Mayor Clint Lamb says the City was required to spend a significant amount of money to repair and maintain its wastewater treatment plant, sewer lines, and lift stations.
