SP&F Helps to Resolve Litigation Involving Water Project

In January 2013, the Town of Waitsfield settled long-standing litigation with the owner of property adjoining the well site for the Town’s municipal water project.
Having obtaining positive decisions from the Vermont Superior Court, Civil Division, on the issues of condemnation and damages in a proceeding to acquire a small portion of the well site property, and from the Vermont Superior Court, Environmental Division, in proceedings challenging the Town’s Act 250 and local zoning permits, SP&F attorneys assisted the Town in successfully negotiating an agreement that terminated all remaining litigation and appeals related to the municipal water project. The Town is now poised to complete this important infrastructure project and has begun to provide water to customers within its service area.
