Knox County Supervisors hear about road woes

CENTER — Complaints on road maintenance were discussed during the Knox County Supervisor meeting on March 30.
Supervisor Virgil Miller had received several complaints concerning Township Boards not doing the required maintenance or “no maintenance” on township roads.
“County road workers keep records on all maintenance that is done. Maybe it should be mandatory for townships to keep records on maintenance when it is done,” Miller said.
County Attorney John Thomas provided legal advice on addressing the complaints that had been received.
The County has the authority for general supervision over the townships according to Thomas.
“The county can dissolve a township or merge townships when it becomes not workable. We have previously done it twice,” Thomas said. “It is done by a vote of the Supervisors.”
