The ranks of those opposed to the Texas Central Partner’s claim of imminent domain to access land for its proposed high speed rail line through the County of Grimes continues to grow.
By a voice vote last week, the Brazos Valley Council of Governments formerly sided with property owners hoping to keep their land out of TCP’s hands.
Precinct 2 Commissioner David Dobyanski represents Grimes on the CoG. He says that through this resolution, he hopes state representatives in Austin will take notice and put an end to TCP’s plans for imminent domain, noting, it’s really only the state legislature that can do so.
Dobyanski tells Navasota News he and his fellow high speed rail opponents are already able to name a few government representatives on their side, including the county’s newest State Representative Leighton Schubert, Byron Cook and Lois Kolkhorst.
And as the high speed rail proponents and opponents continue to battle it out, you’ll hear about it on Navasota News.
And in the meantime Dobyanski advises, if you want have your voice heard, contact your local representatives.
