My question involves personal property located in the State of: PA
My town is getting a new septic system. I own aprox 70 acres around an old mining town. The town will need aprox 1600' of ROW from me including space to install a lift station. I know they have seccured the funding. I have not received any paperwork or notices yet. They completed the initial survey last summer and when I spoke to the tresspassing surveyors they informed of the prosposed project which had changed completely from 3yrs prior and the town was suppossedly paying a dollar/foot which outraged me.
Questions: What rights do I have? Can I stop them from entering my land before receiving just and fair compensation? Can I force them to place the line onto the properties the lines will benefit which would lesson the land they "steal" from me? Must I start a legal battle to get fair compensation? Will I gain anything by going on the offensive and starting before they contact me? What would you suggest if it was your land?
