Duke Energy has announced their chosen routes for two major overhead 230-kV electric transmission power lines in Polk County—one in Kathleen and one in Haines City. Duke has already begun sending eminent domain letters to landowners who will be affected by the powerlines, requesting easements over their properties. Now is the time to take advantage of the experienced representation Peterson & Myers has to offer. Remember that Florida law mandates that Duke Energy pay legal and expert fees for any land owner affected by a taking of the portion of their land. If Duke Energy has contacted you for a power line easement, negotiation request, or appraisal of your land, you need a lawyer to assist you. Peterson & Myers has over twenty years of eminent domain experience at the ready to handle the matter and ensure that your rights are adequately protected. Be sure to contact us at 863-683-6511 for a free consultation.
