GALESBURG, Ill (AP) — The Knox County board has approved a motion that allows the state’s attorney to seek a settlement from Maytag to recoup property tax breaks.

State’s Attorney Paul Mangieri had requested that the board approve a lawsuit that seeks $1.1 million, but the board voted Wednesday to pursue a settlement instead.

Mangieri said Maytag got more than $1 million in tax abatements that it shouldn’t have.

Maytag spokesperson Lynne Dragomier has said the company repaid all its state and city loans when it announced plans to close its Galesburg plant.
