Supervisors agree to upgrade Level B road

The Montgomery County Board of Supervisors has chosen to proceed with a resolution for an update on 222nd St. from a Level B to Level A road.
The dirt road is located just north of the county farm. Plans are to upgrade approximately 600 feet of that road for access to the north driveway of the county farm.
Jeremy Clark, the county farm tenant, said he was interested in upgrading the rest of the road all the way to Hickory Avenue, and had petitioned the county to do so. The road reportedly didn’t need any grading work other than a quick touch-up, and crews would lay a mix of limestone and red rock on it.
Clark, who was present at the Dec. 6 meeting of the Board of Supervisors, said he was looking forward to working with the county.
“I don’t see any downside to it, I’m going to pay for it, and it should be a good deal for the county, the taxpayers, and the school bus uses that road every day, so getting it graveled will be a major improvement,” Clark said.
The supervisors unanimously approved the resolution.
The supervisors also finalized a date for a budget workshop. After ruling out December 13, County auditor Jill Ozuna said that having the meeting Dec. 12 would be an acceptable date.
“I should have a lot of information available by the time the Dec. 12 meeting comes along,” commented Ozuna.
While the supervisors would not have the recommendations from the County Compensation Board at that time, Ozuna expected the information on valuations to have been received from the County Assessor’s Office.
Supervisor Donna Robinson suggested the county’s department heads be contacted and given the option to sit in on the workshop and allow them to choose to attend.
In other business, the supervisors:
• Approved an alcohol license renewal for Cubby’s, Inc.
• Set a public hearing date of Dec. 20 to approve a budget amendment.
• Moved discussion of appointments to county boards and commissions to a future meeting.
• Approved the sheriff’s report of fees for November, 2022, in the amount of $14,178.
• Approved the recorder’s report of fees for November, 2022, in the amount of $23,230.
