Eminent domain in Steuben County

Bath – On Tuesday night, seven property owners in one Steuben County town will find out if they will lose their land to a wind turbine project.

That’s according to our newspaper partner, the Leader.

On Tuesday at 7 p.m., the Prattsburgh Town Board is scheduled to vote on whether to move ahead with eminent domain proceedings.

Board members had agreed last week to hold off on voting before ironing out legal issues with two local school districts.

Earlier this year, the school districts challenged a deal between the town and the developer who wants to build 36 wind turbines in Prattsburgh. Districts are concerned about loss of tax revenue because of the deal.
