County addresses section lines and road concerns

Section lines and road issues once again came to the attention of Oliver County Commissioners when citizens appeared before the governing board on separate issues at the regular monthly meeting held Oct. 9.

Rural resident Mike Ginther, who lives north of Hannover on State Highway 31, brought concerns about the fence next to the road to his rural home. He believes the fence is set on a section line. When winter weather is mild, there isn’t a concern, but when there is snowfall like last year’s winter, the ditches along the road fill as does the road. Ginther said this makes it difficult to get in and out of his property as the road is most often blown in.
