99.190 Proceedings in Circuit Court to compel compliance with law by redevelopment corporations. Whenever a redevelopment corporation shall not have obtained the certificates of <br>approval of its development plan required by KRS 99.040 to 99.060 within twelve (12) <br>months of the date upon which it became a redevelopment corporation, or shall not have <br>substantially complied with its development plan within the time limits for the <br>completion of each stage thereof as therein stated, reasonable delays caused by <br>unforeseen difficulties excepted, or shall do, permit to be done or fail or omit to do <br>anything contrary to or required of it by, as the case may be, KRS 99.010 to 99.310, or <br>shall be about so to do, permit to be done or fail or omit to have done, as the case may be, <br>then any such fact may be certified by the planning commission or the supervising <br>agency, whichever shall have supervision thereof, to the chief legal officer of the city, <br>who may thereupon commence a proceeding in the Circuit Court of the county in which <br>such city is located in the city's name for the purpose of having such action, failure or <br>omission, or threatened action, failure or omission, established by order of the court for <br>the purpose stated in KRS 99.120, or stopped, prevented or otherwise rectified by <br>mandamus, injunction or otherwise. Such proceedings shall be commenced by a petition <br>to the Circuit Court alleging the violation complained of and praying for appropriate <br>relief. It shall thereupon be the duty of the court to specify the time, not exceeding twenty <br>(20) days after service of a copy of the petition, within which the redevelopment <br>corporation complained of must answer the petition. The court shall, immediately after a <br>default in answering or after answer, as the case may be, inquire into the facts and <br>circumstances in such manner as the court shall direct without other or formal <br>proceedings, and without respect to any technical requirements. Such other persons or <br>corporations as it shall seem to the court necessary or proper to join as parties in order to <br>make its orders of judgment effective may be joined as parties. The final judgment or <br>order in any such action or proceeding shall dismiss the action or proceeding or establish <br>the failure complained of or direct that a mandamus order, or an injunction, or both, issue, <br>or grant such other relief as the court may deem appropriate.
