MOUND CITY – On Monday, Jan. 24, the Linn County Commissioners voted to give notice to declare 1200 Lane at Phillips Road running east to the east line of section 21 a minimum maintenance road and to schedule a public hearing on Feb. 28, 2022, during the commission meeting.
At the Jan. 18 meeting, Linn County Counselor Gary Thompson told the commissioners that he had a signed agreement from the landowners along 1200 Lane who wanted the road changed to minimum maintenance and wanted it gated.
Commission Chair Jim Johnson asked what happens later if an owner changes, and they want the gate taken down.
Thompson said the permission to gate the road can be withdrawn at any time but the minimum maintenance is a permanent deal. Landowners can’t come back later and change their minds. New landowners will be notified of the agreement and resolution.
