CH)--There will be a hearing Thursday in Osage County dealing with an ongoing eminent domain dispute between an Osage County landowner and the City of Enid regarding the Kaw Lake Water Pipeline project. Enid News and Eagle reports the landowner, Dr. James Merrifield on Ponca City, disputes the City of Enid has the jurisdiction to build the pipeline across land he owns southwest of Kaw Lake. He also is disputing the award of $47,700 previously approved by court appointed land commissioners for the city to acquire a perpetual 50-foot utility easement across the property. Merrifield has lost several previous objections in court to the condemnation of the land. The hearing is set for Thursday morning in Osage County District Court in Pawhuska.
