Should lake road be closed?

Staff writer

Confronted by an angry county lake resident, county commissioners decided Monday to discuss a road that’s been known for years to be troublesome.

Dave Yates told commissioners that Dan Dr., northwest of the low-water bridge at the lake, is not a safe place to drive. He wants the county to prevent people from using it for anything other than access to homes built along it.

David Mueller was selected to be commission chairman, with David Crofoot vice chairman, for 2022.

Commissioners took a preliminary look at proposals from real estate lawyers to handle property tax sales for the county. Ultimately they decided to talk to the firms more before selecting which one to hire.

County clerk Tina Spencer suggested that the county send property owners who have unpaid taxes a letter informing them that if they don’t pay overdue taxes by a specific date, the county would have a lawyer begin the process of a tax sale.

Spencer offered to contact other counties with which the lawyers have worked to find out whether those counties were satisfied with the law firms’ work.
