IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Attorneys for Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz and his neighbors say they've settled a dispute over a private road and the coach's refusal to join a homeowner's association.

A trial was scheduled to start Tuesday in the dispute that pitted Iowa's highest-paid public employee and his wife against the three other families who live on Saddle Club Road outside Iowa City.

Neighbors filed a lawsuit after the Ferentzes refused to join a homeowners' association and ignored a $9,500 assessment for road repairs. Neighbors say the Ferentzes trespassed by erecting privacy fencing and landscaping in the shared easement and roadway.

Homeowners' association attorney Adam Tarr says his clients "look forward to working with the Ferentzes instead of against them."

The Ferentzes' attorney, Mark Roberts, says, "the neighbors will all be glad to resolve this matter without a trial."
