OSCEOLA, AR (KAIT) - The City of Osceola has filed a lawsuit against Entergy Arkansas.
The city is asking for $5 million, claiming Entergy overcharged Osceola for power the company provided, according to Osceola Mayor Dickie Kennemore.
"Our lawyers David Wilson and Chuck Banks out of Little Rock came to the city council (meeting Monday night) and asked about filing a lawsuit to recapture that overcharge, and they estimated it to be just under $5 million, but also they're claiming interest," he said.
"Our issue was from 2007, 2008, 2009 with Entergy, and we had an identical contract as Union Electric."
He says the city council authorized spending up to $25,000 to hire an additional consultant to strengthen the case.
