KALAMAZOO, MI --The city of Kalamazoo has denied claims in a lawsuit filed by 11 Kalamazoo County entities, including seven townships, alleging it intentionally inflated water and sewer rates. In the city's answer to the lawsuit, its attorneys deny each of the 16 counts, including allegations that the city "has manipulated and overstated" rates by charging more than what is "permitted by contract, agreement, settlement agreement, consent judgment and law."
