David Carroll, Holt County Commissioner was present with a copy of the land survey completed by Midland Survey for specifications to move a small section of Holt County Line Road and relocate it within the borders of Atchison County. He presented a copy of the invoice and an original copy of the survey, which Atchison County agreed to pay.
The survey for the actual land needed for the road was only 9/10th of acre. Land owner Jerry Brown, who agreed to sell the land required for the project at a cost of $5,000.00 per acre, said that the land adjacent to the proposed newly relocated road would be useless to him and he would require it to be purchased also, which both, David Carroll and the Atchison County Commissioners agreed to. Original estimates were that approximately 2.5 to 3 acres would need to be purchased. Mr. Carroll agreed to contact Midland to see if they will be able to provide a land description on the exact land required for the purchase without the need for another survey.
