NEWS!  Monticello Hills, LLC has withdrawn it's legal action againt The Town of Richfield agreeing that NO Host Agreement is in effect for the Second Special Use Permit. There were no grounds for the success of this action against the town. The Town Board approved a cost of $6,100 to pay for defending this frivilous action at the last Town Board meeting Feb 20, 2017.

 

On November 18, 2016, Monticello Hills,LLC served The Town of Richfield Lawsuit papers after being unable to negotiate a new Host Agreement with the Town Board as part of the second Special Use Permit. This action is an attempt to force the current Town Board to accept terms agreed to by a previously seated Town Board for the first Special Use Permit which was annulled by previous court rulings.
