HOUSTON COUNTY: Your unopposed Houston County Commission Chairman, Mark Culver, is asking the Houston County Commissioners to approve destroying your nice mailboxes and brick columns in Houston County.
Culver has asked the commissioners to cast a vote on Monday for a Right Of Way Encroachment Policy. The policy reads "no right of way encroachments are allowed on county right of way". The policy includes brick mailboxes.
The policy further reads " any existing hazard on the right of way will be removed by Houston County after ( 30 ) days from the date shown on the notification letter.
Chairman Mark Culver has been on the county commission for decades. Culver has no person seeking election against him. There is still time for someone to seek election as an independent. Persons who seek election as an independent must get signatures on a petition by June 3, 2014.
