The delays on the part of The Ohio Valley Coal Company continue!!
We believe their continued failure to provide a plan to restore
or replace the home, located at 44480 Bel-Cent Road, is evidenced
by their attorneys motions to the court, furthering delays,
on behalf of TOVCCs owner, Bob Murray. In our opinion a complete
verifiable plan to restore or replace the structure is the simple
resolution to the issue. We, the owners, despite a longer time frame,
have agreed to that sequence of events which would address the problems,
according to the laws and the terms of permit #D-0360. We expected
TOVCC to jump at the chance to prove us wrong with a new bid process,
but instead they continue, through their lawyers, to drag their
feet rather than resolving this serious damage. Why do you suppose
that is? Perhaps they think this issue will disappear if the elderly
resident dies. In fact it will continue, and the longer they drag
it out the more expense will be involved, and the more serious it
becomes. We understand that it is verboten for landowners to ask
How are your contractors plans to make repairs to the
structure going to restore it to pre-mining condition? Perhaps
the court will define the restoration process for everyones
benefit. Questions, by any owners, concerning the type of repair,
and the lack of commitment to a structural engineers recommendations,
will likely result in the numerous delays that we are experiencing!!
Is this really a Good Neighbor Policy by TOVCCO?
