There\u2019s nothing on this side of the river where people can put boats to get out on the river for recreation or fishing, said Lewis.\r\nCONSOL Energy owns the property where Granville plans to put the recreational area, but town officials are working on obtaining that land.\r\nCONSOL has agreed to sell Granville the property, but there must be a reappraisal.\r\n\u201cWe hope to get the appraisal updated because it\u2019s over six months old,\u201d said Granville Town attorney, Michael Solomon. \u201cWe\u2019d also have to get a survey done with the loading facilities.\r\n\u201cAfter those two things are done, I will petition with a certain court and pay into the court the amount of our appraisal and we would get immediate entry.\u201d\r\nIt would take 30-60 days to gain entry. CONSOL can challenge the appraisal amount, and it would go through the court system. It would first go to court commissioners to determine what the fair market value is, said Solomon. Granville has ensured that CONSOL will get a fair market value for the property.\r\n\u201cIf CONSOL\u2019s not satisfied with what the commissioners come up with, they will also appeal it to a survey court and then it would be up for a jury,\u201d said Solomon.\r\nIt\u2019s hoped work on the facility will begin next spring and be usable by summer.
