One Big Billing Dispute



The city of Arcata is being dunned for just over $2 million by the state of California for improperly winding down its redevelopment agency, the Arcata Eye is reporting.

The city has made a preliminary payment of $300,000 and is looking into ways of dealing with the rest, with Mayor Shane Brinton arguing the city should continue to fight, and Councilwoman Susan Ornelas urging cooperation, the article said.

The dispute, which involves what happened to redevelopment money after the state abolished redevelopment agencies, mirrors others going on in cities around the state. Some court battles have already been lost, and other cities are vowing to fight on.
