JAY - Delaware County Commissioners handled agreements, claims, and road projects during their meeting Monday morning.
Commissioners approved a petition to place a section line road in Tia Juana town site, locally known as Lakeside Drive, into reserve status. According to legal council for the adjoining property owners, the road was platted before Grand Lake existed and the property has never been an actual county road. The reserve status will not allow them to build on the property and will remain in that status until such time as commissioners decide to open the road up for public use.
Sealed bids will be advertised including special projects for asphalt including Giggers Road, Allen Cemetery Road and #18 bridge. Bids will also be let for a used pumper truck for the Zena Fire Department.
