CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -
There are new developments in a battle over unpaid liquor taxes in Hamilton County.
The school system filed a lawsuit Friday, suing the City of Chattanooga for more than 11 million dollars in unpaid liquor by the drink taxes, dating between 1998 to 2014.
Monday, school officials made a counter offer to the city which includes a five-year repayment plan. The proposal also asks for a transfer of the former Poss Homes Public Housing site and the North River YMCA swimming pool from the city, to the school system.
Channel 3 has confirmed city officials are not in agreement with the counter offer, and the case will go to court.
