PRE-TRIAL SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 13TH FOR KPD AND CITY OF GREENVILLE
Legal counsels for the Kingsbury Park District and the City of Greenville are scheduled to appear in court once again in Bond County - this time for a Pre-Trial this Friday at 9am. The original pre-trial was to be in early May, with the bench trial to begin this month. Due to scheduling conflicts, those dates were pushed back.
The dispute over Dewey Street has been ongoing since late 2004. On August 15th, 2007, the City of Greenville withdrew their action against the Kingsbury Park District, after nearly three years of battle in court. Less than a week later, the park district sent out a release saying that they believed that legal action was the only way to resolve the issue.
