And WHAT does eminent domain and the Trinity River Vision have to do with providing YOU with a water supply? We already know it has less than 1% to do with flooding.
Read about the latest taking in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
For the fourth time, the Tarrant Regional Water District board voted Tuesday to use its eminent domain powers to acquire property needed for the Trinity River Vision project.
Once the water district files a case, a judge appoints three special commissioners to hear it. In two of the three eminent domain cases, the water district settled with the property owners once those hearings took place. (WHO are the special Commissioners?)
In the other case involving the former American Auto Salvage yard, the owner's attorney, Glenn Sodd, chose not to attend the hearing and said he would take the case to trial in a county court-at-law. No trial date has been set.
