North Bend, tribe settle dispute

Author:

A new agreement between the city of North Bend and the Coquille Indian Tribe to put aside a breach of contract lawsuit will mean the city will lose about $100,000 for providing services. On Wednesday, the two governments settled a lawsuit that's been stewing since last fall. They agreed to a 10-year contract in which the tribe will pay $362,500 this year, with a 5.25 percent increase annually, for police and fire protection, water, sewer and storm water drainage services at its The Mill Casino-Hotel.
