FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The Kalamazoo Wings will end up paying $5,100 of the $9,400 in damages done to the visitor’s locker room at the Memorial Coliseum after a game with the Komets on December 21, 2008.
According to the Allen County Commissioners, the out-of-court settlement was approved Friday that decided Stadium Management Company, owner of the Kalamazoo Wings, will pay the Memorial Coliseum $5,100 in damages.
The Allen County Board of Commissioners filed suit with Stadium Management in August of 2009. It claimed the guest locker rooms had fire damage after the team left.
The damage included a singed and burned handicapped bench, shower head and toilet seat. Additionally, the rubberized floor was damaged along with the walls and floors in the shower. County officials said repairing the floor and the epoxy coating on the walls would cost more than $9,000.
While Stadium Management Co. is paying $5,100, they are not admitting any liability.
The money will eventually go to the Komets, which paid the Coliseum for the damage.
