According to minutes from the Manhattan Beach City Council May 6 meeting, the council decided to reject a recent offer from Brian Dobie regarding a lawsuit between Dobie and the city.
Minutes show the mayor Paul Allen told the council they could not discuss details of the offer or the lawsuit. According to the city’s attorney, Andrew Kaliss, the city feels that Dobie owes the city money for professional services, and Dobie disagrees. Kaliss said by phone that he could not provide any other details on the lawsuit.
Public court records from the Minnesota Judicial System online database show that currently the case is scheduled to go to trial Sept. 9.
Minutes show the council appointed Allen as a representative for the council in arbitration with Dobie.
In other business May 6, the council:
- Heard from Allen that Faith Lutheran Church’s youth group planned to do ditch cleanup for the city. The council decided to donate $200 to the youth group for their efforts. Allen volunteered to make the youth group lunch and talk to them about the history of the city.
- Heard that the planning and zoning committee was working on home occupation fees.
