Judge ordered township to pay landowner

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, S.D. (AP) - A judge has ordered Edgerton Township to pay $3,100 in damages to an absentee landowner.

The court ruled that Donald Nebelsick, of Abilene, Kan., was denied due process when he wasn't provided timely notice of an assessment made against his property.

Nebelsick was assessed the $3,100 after trees were removed at the township's expense from the right-of-way on his property. The township had already resolved to charge landowners who fail to clear the right-of-way on their properties with the cost of maintenance.

Nebelsick appealed the township board's assessment in late January

The judge ruled that the township did not warn him the trees were going to be cut down and failed to tell him he was going to be assessed for the removal.
