JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Eva Bowen is suing the JEA again, this time in federal court. Bowen said she wants to enjoy her property and live in peace.
On January 26, 2010 Bowen purchased an acre and a half on Black Hammock Island. She said when she realized JEA's utility pole was on her property, she wanted to know why. There was no recorded easement.
"JEA did not have a valid easement," said Bowen.
She also claims that the JEA was billing her for the service to another pole, which is also on her property. It has a security light and she said the pole is not hers.
"When the bill was $8.45, I said please stop charging me for the electricity, it is not my pole it is not my electricity," said Bowen.
Bowen said she's been fighting the JEA since she discovered there's no recorded easement.
