ITC is making good faith offers to expand their vegetation management rights for existing transmission lines in Taylor and Brownstown Township
International Transmission Company (“ITC”) is actively issuing good faith offers to property owners in Taylor and Brownstown Township. While ITC has been active in contacting property owners about voluntary acquisitions for years, the good faith offers signal ITC intent to file eminent domain lawsuits to condemn those rights soon. This will be the second phase of lawsuits along these lines. I am in the process of concluding the last of approximately 25 cases in which I represented owners in Brownstown. All of those cases settled, however, I am prohibited from revealing the results of those settlements by confidentiality provisions in those easements.
I am just beginning the process of reviewing appraisals commissioned by ITC to establish the amount of just compensation being offered to the property owners and assembling a group of clients to represent in those proceedings. Please contact me if you have received a good faith offer. From a practical perspective, these type of vegetative management case is best handled when a group of property owners retain the same attorney.
