Capitola Makes 10 Flooding Settlements Totaling $420,000

The lawsuits resulted from flooding in Capitola Village

Capitola is settling the city’s flooding lawsuits for a total of $420,000, Mayor Stephanie Harlan announced Thursday night.

In March 2011, Capitola Village was flooded following a pipe failure in March 2011. Now the city of Capitola and Santa Cruz County are evenly splitting the costs.

At the Thursday City Council meeting, the city made 10 settlements, ranging between $6,000 and $87,500, the Santa Cruz Sentinel reported Friday.

The money will come from a self-insurance group of which Capitola is a member.

Continuing a discussion about gun limitations from a special Wednesday meeting, Councilman Dennis Norton asked that the city not open any more gun retailers – keeping the current number at two. 

The city agreed to return to the proposed ordinance when they meet again in two weeks.
