Johnson County's Commissioners chose to table a decision on whether or not to abandon a stock trail easement, not specifying a particular date to re-address the issue.

The commissioners received a letter from a landowner on the Barnum Road, west of Kaycee in southern Johnson County requesting they abandon the stock drive easement on their property.

Commission Chairman Delbert Eitel, who lives in Kaycee, said he had not discussed the issue with anyone, but explained why he was generally against these types of requests.

Commissioner John Gibbs was absent from the meeting, and Commissioner Jim Hicks said he did not feel comfortable acting on the issue that day for the same reasons Eitel gave, and that he was not familiar enough with the issue, feeling more time would allow him to get more familiar with it.

Eitel and Hicks voted to table the issue.
