  • Post of the Day: Property owner in bulldozer's path gets silent treatment

    Fringe writes:

    A property owner whose two parcels are slated to be cut in two, leaving three remnants, by a state highway widening and relocation project was visited two full years ago by an appraiser, who said highway reps would be visiting soon to negotiate. No more, however, and the silence has been deafening.

    Meanwhile owners to both east and west have been entertaining (if that's the right word) offers, settling, etc very actively. Subject owner's parcel is likely the most valuable by far of all those in the project path.

    Is not the subject owner being denied due process by the silence? Should he lawyer up and go after them?
