Front Royal issues update on litigation with EDA
The Town of Front Royal provided an update regarding the ongoing litigation with the Front Royal- Warren County Economic Development Authority.
Earlier this year, the Town intensified its efforts to settle the litigation between the parties.
The Mayor, EDA Chair and financial teams established a timeline to address and resolve all outstanding claims.
The process was intricate due to missing documents attributed to the misconduct of former EDA Executive Director Jennifer McDonald and the lack of required EDA audits.
Legal proceedings flowing from the situation have been ongoing for years and led to substantial costs shouldered by town and county residents.
In an effort to prevent further financial strain, the town has decided to nonsuit the lawsuit against the EDA.
The Town remains hopeful that this decision will lead to a constructive response from the EDA and acknowledges the various challenges remaining including unresolved Town of Front Royal interests in public trust properties, currently for sale, or under contract, and other projects.
