A lawsuit stemming from unpaid bills from the Kraft Heinz expansion in Kirksville has been settled.

In April, official paperwork was served to council.

According to court documents, Centrex Technical Sales, L.L.C., out of Town and Country, Missouri, said it was owed more than $190,000 in unpaid bills.

Those bills were reportedly tied to the multi-million dollar expansion project at Kraft Heinz that began in 2016.

Centrex sued the city, Kraft Heinz and contractors involved with the construction.

Council members Jerry Mills, Phillip Biston, Richard Detweiler, Rick Steele and Chuck Long were also listed as defendants.

According to city documents, the issue has now been resolved, with contractors agreeing to pay back a portion of the disputed bills.

The city has been released from all liability as it pertains to the Kraft Heinz project.

The city's legal counsel anticipates the dismissal will be filed in the court in the near future.
