Rossville Peerless Mills owner Les Coffey said that since the city now legally owns sewerage lines beneath his plant, the city must repair them.
"You're talking about millions of dollars (in needed repairs)," Coffey said.
...
Basically what that's saying is that it doesn't really matter who the sewer belongs to - if you're hooked up to the city sewer, they basically have a right to it," Coffey said.
Coffey said he's eager to see how the city will take responsibility for the lines which, according to the court rul-ing, the city now "indisputably" owns, Coffey said.
"I don't think they took into account the broad-base consequences of doing this," he said.
"You're setting a precedent," Coffey said.
...
Coffey said he plans to appeal the District Court ruling to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.
On his plans to demolish Peerless Mills, Coffey said the plan is now on the backburner. RDC Inc., which holds the lien on the mill property, has a court injunction preventing the demolition.
"We're sitting and waiting," Coffey said. "We're waiting to see what happens."
Coffey wants to demolish many of the older dilapidated buildings on the Peerless site and build a scrap metal facility on its rear grounds.
"At this point the best economic solution for us is demolition of the buildings," Coffey said.
Coffey commissioned drawings detailing the Peerless site with most of the buildings demolished. He picked up the drawings on March 29. Although he's excited about the plan set forth in the drawings, until some movement happens with the injunction, those blueprints may be as close as he is going to get.

Rossville Peerless Woolen Mills owner Les Coffey on Friday presented documents that, he says, proves he owns the sewer lines at the plant, and therefore the city owes him nearly a million dollars for using them.
Meanwhile, the city of Rossville is claiming it has rights to the lines. The city arrested Coffey last month after he threatened to shut down the lines.
He has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on the matter, the future of which will be decided at a hearing in federal court in Atlanta on March 14.
Coffey was arrested Wednesday, Feb. 16, for making "terroristic threats" against the city and local businesses, claiming the city owes him $985,000 in sewer usage fees, and that if the bill was not paid, he would be forced to cut off the sewer lines.
On Friday Coffey held a news conference to show copies of blueprints of the city of Rossville's original 1958 plans for building new sewer lines. In the plans, many smaller side sewers were listed as "private," including one which services Peerless Mills, and which was labeled "private sewer by Peerless."
According to Coffey, in the late 1950s the city of Rossville found itself in a sewer line entanglement with the city of Chattanooga for inappropriate use of Tennessee lines. The 1958 blueprints which Coffey presented represent, he said, the two cities' attempt to build new lines for Rossville in order to avoid further conflict. As Rossville was not financially able to build the entire structure itself, alleged Coffey, many local private businesses, including Peerless Mills, fronted the cost for the sewerage lines on their own property, therefore retaining the rights to those particular lines.
Coffey maintains that although the city of Rossville has since that time bought out other properties involved in the sewer line building project and their privately-funded sewers with them, Peerless Mills does not fall under that category.
According to Coffey, the sewer line marked on the 1958 blueprint still belongs to the Peerless Mills property, not to the city, therefore exempting any prescriptive easement the city of Rossville may claim.
Coffey further alleges that the city of Rossville has hooked up its other sewer lines to the one that runs under Peerless Mills, effectively using the private sewer without consent, and without making payment.
He estimates that after his four years of ownership of the Peerless Mills property, the city has racked up $985,000 in sewer usage fees, for which he is demanding payment.

Leslie definitely controls the poo. He slings it on every message board he finds.

Just call me crazy Les and remember come by and sell your junk at Rossville Metals. By the way.
...
yes Les, I seen your new "toy" on my way home from work. Made me smile and laugh!! « browndog70 wrote on Thursday, Mar 10 at 09:31 PM » If Coffey does own the sewer God help the people of Rossville. It seems that he has been pushed to the breaking point. A decision will have to be made to Pay Up or install a septic system.
It is scary when we look at some of the people that we have installed in office. They control our money and how it is spent.
Even more scary will be if Coffey owns the sewer. He will control the poo and where it flows.
Has anyone tried being nice to him as opposed to pushing his buttons? « lcoffey wrote on Thursday, Mar 10 at 06:53 PM » Just call me crazy Les. The craziest man in Walker County. Come see crazy Les at the junkyard and sell us your junk. Go to the Lafayette Underground Facebook page and see the latest toy crazy Les has added to his collection at the Peerless site.

Just call me crazy Les. Come by Rossville Metals and see ole crazy Les and sell us you junk. Remember ask for crazy Les.

Again, Coffey has presented no context or background for his latest assertions. He has some 50 year old drawings that show what he wants to show,leaving out every development since...1958. (Boy,do I feel old). But remember,this is the same nutmuffin that has claimed :
1) He would some day be the mayor of Rossville.
