Letter to the Editor Over a year ago my attorney notified "Energy Trans- fer Partners, LE DBA Bakken Pipeline, LLC, DBA Da- kota Access LLC, by letter that I was NOT interested in having a pipeline on my property. Many times since then Dakota Access LLC persisted wanting to survey my property and I always replied, NO! This last April 2015, Dakota Access LLC took the is- sue to the Iowa District Court for Boone County and filed Case Number EQ40450. Petitioning the court to order the survey of my property and ordering the Boone County Sheriff to protect the surveyors while they sur- vey my property in case I would interfere. In one sentence the results were as follows: Judge John J. Harley ruled, based on Iowa Law 479B.15 that the pipeline company has the fight to survey my property with the protection of the Boone County Sher- iff, and they did survey my property without my per- mission and the Boone County Sheriff Department was present, I know this because a few days later I received an Engineers plat of the proposed route of the pipeline through my properties and the pipeline company listed my property on Exhibit H (Eminent Domain) with the Iowa Utilities Board even though my neighbors to the west, north and east have given easements to the pipe- line company and have been paid by the pipeline com- pany for those easements so the pipeline company al- ready has a route around my property. My apologies to my English teacher, Mrs. Weeks, but there you have the information in one sentence and I still say NO!! Our Governor, Senators, Representatives, Judges and Sheriffs are supposedly paid by Iowa taxpayers, to pro- tect Iowa taxpayers, NOT BIG OIL!!! Maybe it's time to change some laws and protect private property in Iowa and Iowa taxpayers. The next election is coming up. Pilot Mound is known for being the "friendliest town around". So far I have tried to be nice.
