Public Hearing: Polecat Hollow Road

Joe Kuhna, County Real Property Administrator, brought to Public Hearing during the June 5th Board of Commissioner's Meeting, the County's Intention to Abandon and Close a Portion of Polecat Hollow Road in order to provide the public an opportunity to comment on the request for the abandonment/closure of a portion of Polecat Hollow Road near Indian Springs.
The portion of the Road is approximately 2.4 miles long, has not been used by the County for a roadway, and it is no longer needed for a public purpose. The Washington County Sportsman Club (WCSC), owner of the property surrounding the portion of the Road in question, has requested that the County abandon/close a portion of the Road and convey the abandoned portion of the Road to WCSC by quitclaim deed for no monetary consideration but in exchange for a parcel of land to be used in the future by the County for a communications equipment site.
Mike Shifler and members of the WCSC appeared in favor of the closure. No one appeared in opposition to the measure. Following the hearting the measure was approved by unanimous vote.
