Commissioners take Holmes County “out of the rock-selling business”

“It’s 8.5 acres of usable land, but if that piece of street was properly vacated it would be 10.6,” said Johnson.

Landowner Daniel Colletti said the Board’s old resolution didn’t include the lower half to be properly vacated, but that he was ready to sign the required paper work and pay the $500 to place up the sign.

“We’ve got to run an ad and hold a public hearing at the next meeting in March,” said Goodman.

Goodman explained that he and Smith had a discussion and found that it wasn’t a matter of access but a matter of devaluing.

“We had a very good conversation and found that he has access to his property,” said Goodman. “I’ve also explained that all these roads have already been abandoned, but since they were not properly filed before we’re having to go through this process now.”

The board agreed to start the process of abandoning Prosser Lane at the request of landowner Steve Rocher since he has purchased all surrounding land and he is the only one to be impacted by abandoning the road.

“We have to advertise for a number of weeks in the newspaper, then we can hold a public hearing and then take action,” said Goodman.
