Les Coffey
Les Coffey 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.
