A document distributed at Thursday night’s Edgerton City Council meeting revealed the city is involved in pending litigation.

A memorandum of understanding drafted by the city detailed the terms under which City Administrator David Dillner may resign from his position and outlined the specifics of how the city plans to transition between Dillner and his replacement.

One section of the memorandum, however,  read: “The city shall provide the reasonable cost of defending employee in the pending litigation known as I-35 Edgerton LLC, et. al. v. The City of Edgerton, Kansas, et. al. … and indemnify employee on this case and any others arising as a result of his employment with the city, as provided by Resolution of the City and by law.”

According to the state’s Business Center, Edgerton resident Connie Fraley is listed as the contact for I-35 Edgerton LLC. The group formed in May 2006 and has an Overland Park address listed.

The Gardner News has placed calls to Edgerton City Attorney Patrick Reavey and other city officials as to the nature of the lawsuit. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
