SALT LAKE CITY —

Criminal charges have been dismissed against a Salt Lake City councilman who admitted breaking into a Washington state cottage leased by his former business partner.

Soren Simonsen agreed to pay $150 to repair glass broken in the Jan. 16 incident in Bellingham, Wash., and trespassing and malicious mischief charges were dropped Monday in Bellingham Municipal Court.

The two-term councilman tells the Salt Lake Tribune he traveled to Bellingham to retrieve a drafting table, bed frame and office equipment from the property leased by Salt Lake City Planning Commissioner Kathleen Hill.

Hill says she's disappointed the charges were dismissed.

Hill and Simonsen in November ended a two-year urban-planning business partnership known as Community Studio Professional.

Hill hired a lawyer after the acrimonious split, and is seeking nearly $100,000 from Simonsen.
