COAL TOWNSHIP — Coal Township commissioners are willing to settle a lawsuit filed against them by Northumberland County Commissioners Rick Shoch and Sam Schiccatano over building permit fees involving the new county prison if the county agrees to donate money toward the township’s recreation facility under construction on West Arch Street.

During their monthly meeting Thursday night, Commissioners Craig Fetterman, Bernie Rumberger, George Zalar and Matt Schiccatano passed a motion to negotiate with the commissioners to end the lawsuit by reaching a compromise on the amount of money Schiccatano and Shoch believe the county was overcharged for the building permits and third-party inspection involving the new prison.
