Development concerns township

Three residents from the northwest portion of the county visited county commissioners during the last regular commission meeting with a concern that a development was coming into their area.
The three, Robert Diffely, Eugene Myers and Dwight Johnson, are township board members from Amundsville Township.
The men had heard of a property purchase, the desire to build a commercial property and that the buyer paid an exuberant amount for property far from other developments. It raised eyebrows for the township members.
Brian and Melanie Hicks, DBA as H&C Trucking, Inc., a firm based in Missouri, is requesting a zoning change from agricultural to commercial for a tract of land described as Outlot A in the SW ¼ of Section 34, Twp. 150 Range 88 west. The couple plans to build a truck storage/repair facility and housing for their employees.
Melanie Hicks said she wanted to put fears to rest, saying H&C wants to do things right. She said there’s no truth to the rumor a man camp is planned.
