Mitchell County Supervisors to Discuss Lawsuit Against County


OSAGE- Mitchell County Supervisors will meet to  hear an update on the lawsuit against the county filed by Mark Evans at Tuesday’s meeting.

In October, Evans filed a lawsuit against the county claiming county officials did not use reasonable care to prevent his car from going into a sinkhole that was created by flooding back in May.

Evans was driving on Angle Road on May 26 when he ran into a snow fence that was placed 20 feet in front of a large sinkhole.  He says there was no other fencing or signage warning oncoming vehicles of the sinkhole.

Mitchell County was declared a disaster area in May due to the heavy flooding throughout the county. Mitchell County Supervisors rescinded a state of emergency that was filed on May 21, 2013.

Other items on the agenda include approval of Wide-Area Emergency Notification System, manure management plan update, a VBC project update, and an update from the County Engineer and Sheriff.
