Longstanding Rapid City garbage case settled

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Rapid City Council has settled a longstanding dispute with a now-defunct garbage hauling company.

The  council voted unanimously Tuesday night to accept a $375,000 settlement and confession of judgment from Fish Garbage Service.

The case began in December 2009, when the city accused the company of defrauding the city landfill by lying about the contents of trucks. Criminal charges against owners George and Clifford Fish eventually were dismissed, but the city pursued a civil case.

The city accumulated about $324,000 in legal fees in the civil case
