Trial date set for City, County dispute against URA

LEWISTON, ID - Friday's hearing between the City and County over how Urban Renewal money should be directed is now cancelled ... however the legal battle is just heating up.

Legal representatives for the City of Lewiston, Urban Renewal Agency and the county met for a status conference Wednesday. In a turn of events, the court vacated the order to show cause hearing and set a trial date of December sixth. All parties agreed on the facts in the case.

In December it will be decided whose interpretation of the URA statute is correct... the county or the city. The URA cannot incur new costs until this issue has been resolved
