PERKINS TWP.

Perkins Township officials are refusing to release aproposed settlement to a civil lawsuit filed by police Chief Tim McClung and Lt. Al Matthews, saying it's not public record.

However, a public records expert says they're wrong.

The trustees voted2-0 Monday night -- with trustee Bill Dwelle abstaining -- to reject a settlement hammered out during an all-day mediation session April 23 in Erie County Common Pleas Court.
