Brazos County Assumes Hunter's Creek Roads

By  | 

Help will soon be on the way to the residents of Hunter's Creek, whose roads are in need of serious repair.

Tuesday Brazos County Commissioners approved an order for improvement of the roads in the subdivision to comply with county standards.

The decision comes after ballots were sent out to hunter's creek property owners asking them if they wanted the county to assume control.

Out of 44 ballots mailed, 35 people voted for the proposal and none against.

According to Brazos County Commissioner Kenny Mallard, property owners will now pay a $500 assessment fee and then the county will assume the roads as well as take over maintenance.

You may recall a public hearing took place in January after Hunter's Creek residents said the developer had neglected the private roads, and the roads did not qualify for county upkeep.
