Area residents ask commissioners to make road private

July 22, 2013

A group of concerned citizens attended the county commissioner meeting Monday in an attempt to have their road recognized as private.
John Stephens said he and other residents are tired of people riding four-wheelers and dirt bikes on the road, as well as throwing out beer bottles and leaving trash along the way.
In an attempt to keep traffic out of the residential area, Stephens placed signs on adjoining 215th Avenue marking 206th as a private drive. After complaints, District 1 County Commissioner Derwin Gist asked the Sheriff's Department to remove and return the signs to Stephens.
