Ferry could get $60K from settlement


MARTINS FERRY — The city of Martins Ferry plans to go after its “fair share” of an opioid-related lawsuit settlement, said Rick Rodgers, president of Martins Ferry City Council.

Rodgers said council held a special meeting this week to approve a resolution related to the settlement money.

“It allows our attorney to go after our share of the settlement for our city — roughly, about $60,000,” he said.
