New Hampton, Iowa – Chickasaw County officials are exploring the option to adopt a policy allowing residents to pave roads at their request.
Chairmen of the Board of Supervisors Jacob Hackman says there are several stipulations to weigh when it comes to adopting the policy.
The policy discussed at the board of supervisors meeting Monday could put in place design standards and road specifications for private property or business owners.
You would have to petition the board for final approval.
According to County Enginieer Dusty Rolando, some policies allow for the county to help pay for the project but up to a certain percentage or cap.
The board had a consensus to ask the county attorney to review documents allowing up to 20 percent of the total project with $200,000 cap.
Rolando says some roads have had seal coats to fix some issues instead of pavement, while adding rock is a cheaper alternative.
He added this was last discussed in 2017.
