Two More Lawsuits Filed

By  | 

The East Kentucky Power Cooperative has filed "Eminent Domain" petitions against Branch Banking and Trust Company as well as Leland and Beulah Phillips.

The suits both claim efforts by both to keep the EKPC from putting up a 161 kilo-volt transmission line on their property.

The company filed similar suits against three other people last week.

Construction on the lines is scheduled to begin later this year.
