SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Supreme Court justices issued a split ruling last week on a disputed piling and dock proposal on a northern Idaho's scenic Lake Pend Oreille.
The Bonner Daily Bee (www.bonnercountydailybee.com ) reports that the court affirmed the Idaho Department of Lands' denial of a bid by a couple to replace pilings on Glengary Bay.
But the state lands agency will have to give further scrutiny to Peter and Shelagh Kaseburg's bid to build a dock.
The Kaseburg's plans encountered rough waters from neighbors on Glengary Bay.
They worried that existing pilings posed a navigational hazard to boats and that the dock would extend too far out into the bay, as well as increase silting and weed growth.
The IDL denied both bids, but now it must review the dock plan again.
