SOUTH DAKOTA ONE CALL NOTIFICATION BOARD
ENFORCEMENT PANEL CONFERENCE CALL
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2011
1:00 PM CENTRAL TIME, 12:00 PM MOUNTAIN TIME
The Enforcement Panel of the South Dakota One Call Notification Board will consider South Dakota One Call Complaint Docket OC11-006. In the matter of the Complaint filed by Active Care Chiropractic against Montana-Dakota Utilities Co. (MDU).
Dr. Nathan Kadlec, Active Care Chiropractic filed a complaint on August 18, 2011 alleging that MDU failed to mark lines in a timely fashion, as required by SDCL 49-7A-8, and as a result another contractor struck the line rupturing it with a boring tool and caused loss of business, closure of the healthcare office, and loss of future revenue.
MDU responded on August 29, 2011 that it had located its facilities on the other side of the road, and that their insurance provider will be contacting Dr. Nathan Kadlec.
Does probable cause exist to find that MDU violated SDCL 49-7A-8?
If probable cause is found to exist, the Panel will discuss appropriate penalties. If probable cause is not found to exist, the complaint may be dismissed.
You are welcome to listen in to this call, however only the written information provided by the complainant and the written response from the defendant will be considered. No comments from either party involved will be taken during the call. We have limited ports available on the conference bridge, so if you do plan to call in, please conference in on one line.
NOTE: Please call (605) 339-0529 at least 10 minutes prior to the call for call-in instructions.
