Board hears dispute over old road

Good fences may make good neighbors, but they can also start a legal battle when surveys disagree.

Red Willow County commissioners mediated a dispute Monday morning between two landowners arguing about a road and access to farmland.
During a 73 minute public hearing, Phil and Janice Bamesberger asked commissioners to abandon and vacate the road; Stan and Steve Quigley said they don't want its status changed.

The road, named Road 221 in 1889, runs east of the intersection of (current) Roads 397 and 713, south of Indianola on the Indianola-Danbury road.
The road dead-ends in a pasture after about three-quarters of a mile, although Commissioner Leigh Hoyt said Monday morning that at one time it turned north another half-mile into a farmstead that no longer exists.
County Roads Superintendent Gary Dicenta told commissioners several weeks ago that he can find no record of a right-of-way width or official abandonment or vacation of Road 221.
