WVC 17 - 18 - 10
§17-18-10. Same -- Establishment of wharf at public landing;
regulation of and limitations on such wharf.
Any person desiring the privilege of erecting a wharf at or
on any public landing, not a part of a state road, may present a
petition to the county court of such county for such privilege;
but notice of the petition, or of his intention to present the
same, shall be posted at the front door of the county courthouse
and at three public places in the district in which it is
proposed to erect such wharf, three weeks at least before the
petition is acted upon. Such court upon petition and notice may
grant such privilege upon such conditions and limitations, and
fix such rates and charges for wharfage, as it sees fit, subject
to revision and alterations by the public service commission. But
it may at any time afterwards, upon ten days' notice to the owner
of such wharf, or his tenants, revoke such privilege or alter
such conditions or limitations, subject to the regulatory power
of said commission.
