Several local ideas may help lakefront property owners who are facing removal of their structures.
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler was in town Tuesday on a fact finding mission concerning FERC and their order which changes the rules of Ameren Missouri’s Shoreline Management Plan.
After hearing concerns at Lake Valley Condominiums and at the Camden County Courthouse, Hartzler says there is urgency.
Local ideas proposed yesterday included using adverse possession to claim that accepted and not actual boundaries that have been followed may give property rights to lakefront homeowners. Another local idea was to use state law which was adopted under planning and zoning rules in camden county to put shoreline management from the 645 elevation and up into the hands of the county. A final suggestion involved Cedar Heights Condominiums at the 2.5 MM of the Niangua Arm who applied to FERC back in early 2000 to move the boundary line.
Hartzler says the ideas may lead to further legislative action.
