JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio -- Steubenville is getting $3 million from that settled lawsuit, but there is some question from officials on just when the money should be used.
The 8-year-old lawsuit involves DLZ Ohio for work on the city's raw water pump station and filtration plant.
The Steubenville Finance Department wants to spend some of the settlement money, while council wants to hold on to it.
Officials are also looking at where some of the money might go, including two other waterline projects in Steubenville.
Meanwhile, plans are underway for a big water project on Harvard Avenue that includes the reconstruction of a 70-year-old water pipe.
“There were three different letters sent to residents,” City Engineer Michael Dolak said. “A letter 6 months ago preparing them for the project, a letter approximately about a month ago informing them of the construction details, and then about 2 weeks ago, we sent an informational letter out regarding an informational meeting we'll be having at the Primetime Center, located at 300 Lovers Lane Wednesday from 5:30-7."
In the meantime, city officials are waiting on a final grant to get approved before the project officially starts.
