Bountiful City has made an out of court settlement with residents who said in a lawsuit that the city had no right to their property.

The council voted last week to sign over the deed to a sliver of land at Fifth West and Sixth South on Mill Creek. A suit filed a year ago by Bountiful residents Larry and Iris Young said that the city and another party wrongfully claimed ownership of the land, said Tom Hardy, city manager.In return for turning over a quit claim deed, the Youngs have agreed to grant the city an easement through the property for flood control.
