City of Galveston, CDM Smith reach final resolution

Galveston, TX – Dec. 31, 2018 – The City of Galveston reached an amicable resolution with CDM Smith, Inc., a program administrator hired to oversee the Hurricane Ike disaster recovery program, and on Monday issued a final payment to the company.

The City of Galveston on Dec. 31 issued a payment of $13.5 million to CDM Smith, marking a final resolution with the company.

Litigation with CDM Smith began in 2013. In November, the court ordered a judgment in favor of CDM Smith for $15,725,068.49. The City and CDM Smith reached a final agreement, in which the City of Galveston agreed to pay the company $13.5 million before the end of the year.

“We’re pleased to have reached a final resolution with CDM Smith,” City Manager Brian Maxwell said. “We appreciate CDM’s willingness to work with us and bring this litigation to a close.”

The City made the payment from its general fund.
