At their last meeting the Johnson County Commissioners and County Planner Rob Yingling discussed two subdivisions and each of their issues and how he was addressing them.
Emerald Park Subdivision's developer ran out of escrow money to pave the streets, Yingling said, but still have four lots to sell before he is required to pave them. He is looking to find a way to make the agreements work.
Yingling explains further.
The Shores At Lake DeSmet Subdivision has become a mess, Yingling said, with the developer selling off a major portion of the subdivision including land for a street and common open space, subsequently creating what he believes is a illegal subdivision.
Yingling has discussed with County Attorney Ken DeCock the possibility of pursuing litigation against the Piney Creek Land Company.
Yingling explains the issues the county has with the changes with the subdivision.
DeCock's Legal Assistant Betsy Willoughby told the commissioners they have filed a civil suit and papers had been served on the developer.
