§ 7-1 Authority of Town Board to settle Equitable Claims.

The Town Board is hereby authorized to compromise or settle any equitable claim against the Town of Amenia upon such terms which, in the judgment of the Town Board, are found to be just, reasonable and in the best interest of the Town, including such claims that may not be legally enforceable against the Town at the time of such approval of compromise or settlement by the Town Board, except that this section shall not be construed to authorize payment of equitable claims that are barred by an applicable statute of limitations.
"Equitable claim" is defined as a claim against the Town for damage for a nontortious cause of action for which there is no judgment docketed and no litigation pending.
