Clayton officials have been persistent in their effort to communicate with property owners in the John Street townhome community that will be impacted by plans to upgrade the sewer system serving that development. That persistence has paid off. All the homeowners have now been contacted and the final two seem willing to participate in the project.

That’s good for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that the town does not have to enter into eminent domain action to gain access to the property.

That’s a costly, time-consuming process that, quite frankly, creates more ill will than anything else.

Property owners don’t want that. The town doesn’t want that either.

The town has worked hard to locate and communicate with all 16 property owners. And when the final paperwork is in, workers will be able to make improvements that will benefit those residents.

And, everybody likes that idea.
