MARYVILLE, MO (2010-7-27) In tough budget times, the City of Maryville is getting back nearly $40,000.
The windfall comes in a settlement agreement with T-Mobile, which the City says didn't pay taxes and business license fees. The lawsuit is part of a class action suit with other cities around Missouri. The council last night also agreed to settle a similar class action lawsuit with cricket telecommunications. Although the city won't receive any money for that, it is included in the suit should future taxes and revenues become available because of other legal actions. Also at the meeting last night the Maryville council issued a contract to demolish the water tower at 9th and Mulberry streets. It's also investigating what to do about the city's first public mural, which has a chunk that's fallen off of it in recent storms. The city is looking into how it can help the citizen's group responsible for the mutual make repairs even though it is on a private building in the downtown district. That issue is expected to come up again at future meetings.
