City overcomes right-of-way stall to progress safe road to new school
[ed. note: “progress” is not a verb
ed. note2: The text of the article refers to “Curd Road,” but the jump line says, “see CURB, page 9″ and the heading for the story continuation on page 9 is also “CURB.” Tends to undermine the readers confidence in the paper’s attention to detail and commitment to accuracy
comment: The owner of one of the parcels has agreed to give the city “possession” of the needed right-of-way across their land and postpone the question of compensation for a later date. One hopes the leaders of the City realize that once the City takes possession, the City is then obligated to pay the owner the fair market value of the land, if the owner insists. And that the owner can request that the question of what the “fair market value” of the land really is be decided by a jury. Why go to Vegas when you can do some high-stakes gambling right here at home?]
