City proposes land settlement with Muckleshoot Tribe

The Tacoma City Council is proposing to transfer more than 100 acres to the Muckleshoot Tribe in order to settle a water rights dispute.

The city would transfer 55 acres worth about $1 million and another parcel of 46 acres worth about $70,000. The land is part of a complex settlement with the tribe.

Officials believe they have the authority to convey the land but city councilman Tom Stenger says it would be illegal under the city charter.
