Owner of Illegal RI Dock Under Fire

EastBayRI: Action against a Libby Lane resident accused of illegally installing a large dock system on the Kickemuit River is picking up.

The state Coastal Resources Management Council may hold a hearing and issue a removal order later this month in the case of Thomas Koolen, who was ordered to remove an illegal series of docks from his family’s 1 Libby Lane property by last Friday. The docks, for which Mr. Koolen does not have the required CRMC assent, were still there as of Monday.

In a letter to the Kickemuit River Council, an enforcement officer from the state agency said the next step in getting the offending docks out is the removal order. She hopes to schedule a hearing with the CRMC for late July.
