RITA — Another coal camp in Logan County is facing extinction and leaving more than 30 families without a home. Residents of Rita were given notice this week that their rental agreements would be terminated on October 1 and they were to make plans to remove themselves and their belongings from property.
In the lease termination notice sent to residents, DB Land LLC stated that they had decided to use the property for commercial development purposes.
Most of the residents were born and raised in the camp. Many of them are elderly or disabled and with low income.
