GREEK THEATRE LAWSUIT SETTLED.

Byline: Rick Orlov Staff Writer

The Los Angeles City Council settled a lawsuit Friday over the Greek Theatre to allow the operator to build new bathrooms immediately, for up to $2 million out of the city's share of revenue.

The agreement also would allow the city to seek bids for the Greek's long-term operation. The council originally awarded a controversial contract extension to the Nederlander group without bidding but reversed itself in the face of a successful petition drive that would have put the issue to voters.

Under the terms of the proposal, the Nederlander group will add 73 women's bathrooms and 31 men's rooms by June 1 when the Greek begins its summer season.

Nederlander will be allowed to withhold up to $1.78 million in rent to pay for the work, a process that had been previously approved by the Recreation and Parks Commission.

``We think this is a good deal for the city since we're getting the restrooms we've needed for years,'' said Ellen Oppenheim, department general manager.

The Nederlander concession contract ends in July 2001.
