I-69 Excess property
Daviess County Economic Development Corporation Director Ron Arnold told the commissioners the Indiana Department of Transportation has excess property from I-69 construction available.
Arnold said most of the property is available for governments as a transfer or purchase at low prices. A letter to the commissioners from INDOT indicates there are four large parcels currently available.
“I think there is a total of 180 to 200 acres throughout the county,” Arnold said.
He advised the commissioners to write INDOT a letter of interest. He said the city of Washington has also been advised to show interest.
The commissioners voted to make their interests known to INDOT.
Highway Superintendent Phil Cornelius asked for a road change near Maysville. The owners of a trailer court near Maysville are changing the name from Maysville Mobile Manor to Country Circle Court. The request was granted. The same owners are also changing the name of Park East Mobile Court in Washington to Trail Breeze Kourt.
Cornelius said paving on several county roads has begun near Odon. County road crews are paving earlier this year due to low prices on asphalt that will only be in place until June. Motorists are advised to use caution around county work crews.
