Mr. Branson gave a brief progress update on the revenue sharing funds.

 

IN RE:  RESOLUTION /R-O-W FOR RT 1005 (E 29TH STREET)

Mr. Branson explained that there is 5 ft of property located on 1005 East 29th Street in the Southern section of Big Stone Gap that was erroneously built on by a property owner during the construction of an addition to his house.  Mr. Branson stated that there is a 60 ft R-O-W dedicated in a plat on that street which is sufficient.  He recommended that the 5 ft. piece of property from the adjoining streets that face this property be sold to the property owner.  In order to do this, it must first be declared as surplus property by the Commonwealth Transportation Board.  A resolution regarding this request will be prepared for Board approval at it's next meeting. 

Board members presented several complaints to Mr. Branson from citizens in their districts.  They asked that he review them and report back at the next meeting.

Board members also voiced their appreciation for the guardrails that have been installed in different areas of the County.
