Palm Beach commissioner seeks easement

March 21, 2008 07:39PM

Palm Beach County commissioner Jess Santamaria is asking the Indian Trail Improvement District to move an easement line, allowing investor Rup Nagala, reportedly his friend, to develop a lake-side property he bought from Santamaria in 1994. The district board denied this request eight years ago, before Santamaria had become commissioner, saying the land could be used to improve drainage.
