Commissioners to advertise for Request for Qualifications regarding the county roads’ right of way project. The bids will be opened at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 5.
Commissioner Gordon Oelkers explained that about 75 percent of the roads in the county don’t have proper right of ways.
“The biggest issue is when people want to borrow money on land and they don’t have a legal right of way,” Oelkers said. “It keeps getting worse because the title companies and lending institutions are really looking at access for land.”
Commissioners said that about $100,000 will be put in the budget for the project.
