UPLAND – The City Council on Monday evening authorized the city attorney to send a letter to the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors requesting the supervisors terminate their lawsuit against the city and two other public agencies.

The letter will request the county end its lawsuit against the city, San Bernardino Associated Governments and Caltrans seeking partial reimbursement of a landmark $102 million settlement with Rancho Cucamonga-based developer Colonies Partners LP.

In their first opportunity to address the lawsuit since former county Assessor Bill Postmus pleaded guilty on March 28, council members directed City Attorney William Curley to draft the letter.

“It’s time to bring it to an end. It’s time to get straightened out, get square with the taxpayers and move on,” Curley said.
