Residents ask court to stop IW waterline
A group of residents concerned about ISLE 2040 filed a petition yesterday in Isle of Wight Circuit Court to stop a waterline to Gatling Pointe.
The petition for a writ of mandamus alleges the proposed $2 million waterline to Gatling Pointe violates Isle of Wight County’s comprehensive plan that advises planners not to extend public utilities beyond the Newport Development Service District. It also alleges that the Board of Supervisors violated the Code of Virginia by authorizing funding for the waterline by approving the fiscal 2016 budget on May 1.
The petition is being brought by Betsy Eagan, Bill Eagan, Lawrence Pitt, Albert Burckard and Herb DeGroft.
