Many Road 5 Residents Accept Settlement Offers

10/3/18 – 5:21 A.M.

Several Road 5 residents in Putnam County have settled their lawsuits against the county. The Lima News reports only three people are now taking their case to court next week. The lawyer representing the county says Mark Maag, Robert Niese, and Anne Nienberg decided not to accept settlement offers.

The longstanding dispute is over the use of eminent domain to take the land used to widen Road 5. A jury will hear the remaining lawsuits on October 9.
