Randy McCauley, Road Department Administrator,
presented road crossing permits which were reviewed and approved by the
Sheriff Lance Babcock joined Randy McCauley
to talk about posting 65 mph speed limit signs on paved county roads. It was
decided that signs will be placed on most paved roads that don?t have them.
Short paved roads such as the one by the Mennonite school east of town will
remain at 55 mph. Mr. McCauley talked to the commissioners about the necessity
of road repairs on Rose Lane. He explained there are 2 residents who don?t want
anything done to the road because they say it keeps people from speeding on the
road. It was decided the road needs to be maintained in a safe manner. Since
lots along Rose Lane are platted but the roads aren?t, Mr. McCauley will talk
to the landowners and explain that they should get the roads platted too.

Resolution 09-07 waiving the requirements of K.S.A. 75-1120a (a) as they apply
