Road Closing To Be Discussed

The standing committees of the Putnam County commission meet this evening to discuss a number of topics -- including a proposal to close D. Farley Road. That's a county road that runs off Highway 84, (the Calfkiller Highway), south of Monterey. A public hearing on the proposed closing will take place at 5:30 this evening and the county's planning committee will take up the issue at six. Meanwhile, the planning committee will also consider setting a speed limit for Old Walton Road, while the Fiscal Review committee will hear from Shelba Hodges of Plateau Mental Health Center and from county executive Kim Blaylock. Blaylock will be talking about energy efficiency and conservation block grants, as well as the Local Government Energy Loan program.
