Resident reported to Boultinghouse that CR775 off of K HWY is not being maintained. After discussion, it was determined that this piece of road had been left alone because a previous resident was maintaining this section of road and they had instructed the county not to touch it some years ago until we were told otherwise so it has been left out of the maintenance list. That resident has since moved away so the road has fallen into disrepair. It will now be reintegrated into the county schedule for routine maintenance.
Resident reported rough road on CR1125 due to local residents 4-wheeling.
