Town of Paradise Valley council members unanimously approved a “conditional settlement” with Tim and Mirja Riester regarding a sewage backup that happened to their home two years ago.
After ongoing pending litigation and recent mediation, all members at the Sept. 26 Town Council meeting voted in favor of paying an “anticipated” $1,000 out-of-pocket deductible on the town’s insurance policy; and having the town’s insurance cover the remaining balance, along with the City of Scottsdale to settle the sewage case.
The Town’s attorney, Andrew Miller, said the Riester settlement will be shared equally amongst both the town and the City of Scottsdale. And, the settlement will be completely done when Scottsdale signs off on their part “in a week or two.”
