Developer seeks to block substation
Placeholder Image
A local developer has filed court documents in an attempt to block a local utility from building a substation. Attorneys Sarah Cripps and Brandon Cox filed a complaint on behalf of Joe Rice, developer of the Meadowview Subdivision off College Street, on Sept. 2 against the Smithville Electric System (SES) and the City of Smithville. The action seeks a declaratory judgment to construe and apply state law to the matter, and asks for a temporary injunction and a permanent injunction to prohibit SES from constructing the facility in an R-1 low density residential district, and for any further relief.
