Danville using eminent domain authority
A local resident does not want to sell seven acres of farmland for an improvement to the wastewater treatment system in Boyle County, but she might have to anyway. The Danville City Commission voted unanimously last night to use its power of eminent domain to get the woman to sell the property. The city says part of Jeannette Germann's farm on Harrodsburg Road, north of the new Kentucky 33-Kentucky 34 Connector Road, is needed for a sewage lagoon to supplement an overloaded part of the wastewater treatment system.
