Road & Bridge
Bill Nation, Road & Bridge Superintendent presented a letter of response to the US Forest Service request for the County to take over the maintenance on the Cedar Pass Road. Mr. Nation stated the result of the road almost closing last year during hunting season was a concern to many. He agreed last year to keep the road open during hunting season and that was a success. Mr. Nation stated the statutory procedure would apply for the county to accept this in the road system, and he recommends accepting the road noting part of the procedure would be to bring the road up to the county standards. Chairman Espy read the proposed response for the records.

RE: Forest Road 261
Dear Ranger Fullman:
The Carbon County Board of Commissioners are writing in response to your email asking whether Carbon County has any interest in receiving ownership of Forest Road 261. As your email pertains to deeding Forest Road 261 to the county, the required statutory process would need to be followed before your request could be considered by this Board. In addition, it is customary practice to require the entire road be brought to the standards which the county roads must meet, prior to this occurrence. Any costs for bringing the roads to the appropriate standard would be borne by the Forest Service.
A long-term agreement for county maintenance would also require that the Forest Service bring the road up to the current standards, and pay any associated costs with doing so. Due to financial constraints, the costs for continued maintenance would still need to be provided by the U.S. Forest Service.
Please contact Bill Nation, Carbon County Superintendent of Road and Bridge, if you have any questions regarding the standards that county roads are required to meet.
-s- John Espy, Chairman on behalf of the
Carbon County Board of County Commissioners
