Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. It appears that you have a private easement as opposed to a traditional government right of way. Is the easement identified in your deed, or through a separate Easement document filed for the property?

2. Are you looking to expand the easement from its present width? Is the property owner complaining that the driveway is too wide?

3. Has the width of the driveway changed in the last 20 years?
