During the Collin County Commissioners Court on Monday, Commissioners approved a settlement agreement related to a lawsuit between Arch Resorts, the city of McKinney and Collin County.
Arch Resorts sued McKinney in 2015 regarding the resorts proposed development of an RV Resort. One issue at hand involved the county’s permitting authority in McKinney’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, so McKinney joined the case as a third-party defendant, according to county documents.
The settlement discussed at Monday’s meeting seeks to settle claims between the city of McKinney and Collin County.
According to the settlement agreement approved today by Commissioners Court, the city of McKinney will agree to dismiss all claims asserted against Collin County in this action and will reimburse the county for its “reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in this litigation” totaling $19,510.76.
The agreement also stated that once the county is paid for the attorneys’ fees, the county will dismiss all claims alleged against McKinney in this action.
The legal fee reimbursement has not been approved by McKinney City Council but will appear on the Dec. 5 agenda, Denise Lessard, communications and media manager for the city, said in an email.
