A trial date has been set for a civil lawsuit between plantiff Steve Green — former general manager at Creston Water Works — and the city of Creston and Water Works Board of Trustees.

The trial with a jury is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Dec. 8, 2014, in the Union County Courthouse.

Green filed the civil lawsuit on Nov. 7, 2013. It outlines violations of wage payment collection and breach of contract by the water board.

He was terminated in June 2013 by the water board after an investigation by the state auditor determined Green was paid almost $90,000 in improper and unsupported funds between July 2005 and November 2012.

In the lawsuit, Green is asking to be paid wages due under his contract, which includes accrued vacation and sick leave. He said the breach of contract has caused him financial harm.

There is a settlement hearing and pre-trial hearing available upon request.

Still, no updates have been released by the Iowa Attorney General if criminal charges will be filed against Green.
