City Solictor John DeRosa explains the legalities surrounding a settlement made with the Freight Yard Pub.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday rejected borrowing $160,000 to settle a lawsuit taken out against the Redevelopment Authority.

"I will be going back to the Redevelopment Authority to evaluate any and all next steps," the mayor responded later.
