PHOENIX, Arizona – July 19, 2017 – After several years of legal sparring, the United States has agreed to a settlement with the Barron Collier Company to resolve ongoing litigation over Collier’s decision in 2012 to default on approximately $66.5 million owed to the United States. The debt stems from Collier’s acquisition of 72-acres of land at the site of the historic Phoenix Indian School located at Central Avenue and Indian School Road in Phoenix. The original deal, which was approved by Congress in 1988 as part of the Arizona-Florida Land Exchange Act (Act), required the Interior Department to hold payments made by Collier from the land deal in trust to meet the future educational needs of the Member Tribes of the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. (ITCA) and the Navajo Nation. Since Collier’s default, ITCA Tribes have had to vastly curtail educational programs and place some facility construction projects on hold.
Officer Hemmer, Officer Hernandez and Chief Nerva participated in this event representing the Quechan Police Department.
