County to redraft old road policy

County commissioners have ordered a redrafting of what they consider to be outdated road maintenance policies.

The policies were developed 30 years ago, when farming practices were different, commissioner Kent Becker said.

County clerk Tina Spencer will work with road and bridge supervisor Jesse Hamm to propose a policy for review at a later date.

Hamm told commissioners Thursday that if county crews were working on a road, they’d rather do a thorough job instead of “just a little here and there.”

Commissioner Dianne Novak said all items cited by a road committee that appeared at a commission meeting Dec. 18 need to be addressed.
