Resolution sought to denounce utility district land acquisition
Placeholder Image
County Commissioner Michael Shane Wilcher is taking a stand against a forceful land acquiring attempt by West Warren Viola Utility District. “I am asking the county attorney to draft a resolution denouncing the unlawful acts and actions by West Warren Viola Utility District in attempting to take private property from the Jarrell family in Coffee County, and asking the utility to cease and desist any current and future attempts, legal or otherwise, to condemn or take private land away from the Jarrell family of Coffee County,” said Wilcher. Over the past three years, the utility has been embroiled in a bitter land dispute with the Jarrell family.
