Good for farmers, not drivers

Staff writer

Tall corn at the corner of Kanza and 190th Rds. has turned an intersection “very dangerous” for drivers, road and bridge supervisor Jesse Hamm told commissioners Monday.

After speaking with the property owner, Hamm was checking with the commission to make sure what protocol should be followed.

Commissioners told him first to ask County Attorney Susan Robson, notify the landowner of the situation, and document the situation.

Chairman Roger Fleming said recent rains have come at an opportune time for corn crop.

“What if there are 100 intersections like this in the county?” Commissioner Randy Dallke asked.

Hamm also informed commissioners workers would be done chip-sealing in a couple weeks with a half-mile of Eisenhower Rd. Work in Lost Springs wrapped up Monday.

In other business, commissioners approved a five-year lease-purchase agreement from Community National Bank for two Volvo motor graders recently purchased.
