The Marbella power line dispute is in limbo. A tentative settlement was negotiated to remove the overhead power lines and bury most them over the months ahead pursuant to a negotiated timetable. Although most of the clients perceive this as a victory, until the work is actually completed, William Brown, LLC considers this a stalling tactic to quiet the media and appease the residents. The best news, in our opinion, is that the practice, by officials, of overlooking the League City ordinances has now come under scrutiny. The result is that the offenders responsible for granting the variance that opened this can of worms have been removed. The League City Council has also drafted new statutes and policies affecting these practices to prevent this travesty from happening again. We will revisit this issue to monitor compliance with the terms of the agreement as the matter develops.
