BLUFFDALE, Utah (AP) -- Bluffdale is getting ready to fight expected legal battles by allocating more than $200,000 for legal costs this year.
That's a lot more money devoted to legal bills than any other Utah city of its same size.
Among the issues that Bluffdale could have to face in court are a battle over nearly one-third of its acreage. Landowners want to annex about 4,000 acres of land in Bluffdale to neighboring Herriman.
The city also expects a lawsuit from a company that was denied a business license to operate a drug treatment center in Bluffdale.
The fiscal year 2007-2008 legal budget of $210,000 is about $156,000 more than expected for a city of its size.
