HUNTINGTON — A couple is suing a sanitary board, alleging their property was damaged by sewage on multiple occasions.
Jonathan D. and Alison W. Houck filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against The Village of Barboursville Sanitary Board.
The suit claims the plaintiffs own the property at 1001 Peyton St. and 1001 A and B Peyton St, and that the plaintiffs' property was repeatedly damaged by sewage coming onto their property beginning November 2015. The plaintiff was reportedly given payment for repair and clean up by the defendant on April 4, 2017, but the defendant failed to make repairs to the sewage system and caused the plaintiffs to suffer from damages throughout March, April, May and June of that year.
The defendant is accused of negligence.
The plaintiff is seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiff is represented by Joseph Farrell Jr. of Farrell, White & Legg PLLC in Huntington.
