D to the beginning of the slab bridge at Green’s Creek.  Mr. Boast stated that county cannot do maintenance on roads it doesn’t own, therefore there would be no funds or time spent by the county road district to maintain a private road.  Mr. Kean offered that he’d just have to sue over the matter, then exited the meeting.  Ed Worley said he was at the meeting to represent a “committee” of taxpayers who had complaints about several road issues.  The first begin a complaint about “spending $100,000.00 on a truck with chrome wheels and an aluminum flat-bed.”  The second being concerns about “use of county vehicles on private roads.”  The third being the terrible condition of Argo Road, Mound Road, Old Springfield Road east of Leasburg, and McPherson Road, which all had potholes and were hardpacked.  Jared Boast offered to discuss each of those issues, but Mr. Worley was apparently pressed for time and said he could not stay around to hear answers, but would return later.
