Residents wanting information about agreements for Clean Line easements are offered an online video from The Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation.  “View it at your convenience if you are interested in the topic,” said Becky Bray, Scott County Extension Director. “We’re heading into a busy season for lots of rural people and we hope that they can view and possibly review this information as needed.”

The Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation (CALT) has produced a video presentation of the legal issues associated with Clean Line Easement Agreements.  The presentation by CALT Director Roger McEowen and CALT Staff Attorney Kristine Tidgren addresses key issues facing landowners.  The presentation breaks down a standard easement agreement and puts particular emphasis on clause language that landowners may want to attempt to negotiate.  General topics addressed include the nature of the easement, the rights granted in the agreement, the structure of compensation, damages, landowner usage, cancellation rights, the ability to assign the agreement, termination events and eminent domain.  The session concludes with some common questions that have been raised about clean line easement agreements.

The presentation can be found at the following link:
