Horton said the request came from landowners around County Road 300, which is south of Chillicothe.  “It’s one of those little section of road right on 65 and very attractive for people to go in there and mud, and, you know, cause problems on the road, and get into the fields and things,” said Horton.  The law states that the deadline for the petition to be presented was yesterday, and then lies for one quarter.  A hearing regarding the road closing will be January 3rd.

The Commission also voted to put a five cent tax levy on the April ballot.  Horton said, if it passes, five cents per hundred dollar valuation of personal property and real estate would go toward senior services.  “Then the Commission would appoint a board, and then different organizations throughout the community could come and present a grant proposal to that board to access these funds to be used for senior services,” said Horton, “It’s been brought to our attention that it would be a good thing to help promote and improve services for our senior adults in our community.”  The request was brought forward by the Concerned Citizens of Livingston County Board.
