According to a notice in The Monticello News there will be a public hearing on February 2, 2015 at 6:00PM to consider a road abandonment (road closure) application from applicant, Peter Jones. Mr. Jones wants the county to abandon New Hope Church Rd. from Hwy 83 S to the intersection of McElheney Crossroads.
The public is invited to attend this meeting which will be held downstairs in the Courthouse in the BOC meeting room; however, there is no posting of this public hearing on the county website under “Public Hearings.”
Mr. Jones called and said that the county has not graded this road in 3 years and he thinks it should be abandoned. If this is the criteria for closing a county road, how many in the county will be put on the list for closure?
We invite your comments on this and all issues.
