This is the second letter mailed, with the first going unanswered, to Elected Officials, County, State, and Federal.
Now, we the undersigned, are petitioning for a half mile of road on Evening Drive in Carter County, Kentucky, Sunset Valley Subdivision, one of the newest subdivisions with the newest homes in the west end of the county, to be blacktopped.
We have eight houses, each valued at $150,000 or more with attached garages or more than one detached garages at some spots, as well as at least two or more vehicles at every home.
We pay our property taxes, just as anyone in Carter County does and probably at a higher rate for actually living in a subdivision .We were told the road would be blacktopped when we purchased this property and instructed that, to live in the subdivision, we had to have our driveways either blacktopped or concrete within a year of building.
This mainly has been done by all of us, but makes no sense when the main road is gravel. We have waited patiently, most of us for five years.
We feel we have driven on dusty, dirty, slimy roads long enough.
Not only is this an inconvenience for the cost of maintenance and upkeep of our vehicles, it is also a hardship to remove the dirt and grime from the dust of the road daily from our homes.
Drive through the subdivisions in Grayson, it would be safe in saying most if not all are blacktopped!
Is this again an east end West end issue? Please let us know if there is any reasonable reason our road should not be blacktopped in the newest subdivision in the western end of Carter County.
We have some of the newly built homes and would like to keep them well maintained. Others do have this luxury in other subdivisions both in the east end and west end of the county. Why not our subdivision? We desire an answer. We are voters and Carter County taxpayers and expect answers.
