Closure of monticello road proposal

PROPOSAL TO VACATE POPULAR COUNTY ROAD: The Sierra County Commission will consider a proposal to vacate County Road A-033 in Upper Monticello Canyon during its meeting starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 21.

“The unique attractiveness of the area… has caught the attention of the general public with an increasingly heavy traffic flow of jeeps, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles,” states a resolution adopted by the Monticello Community Ditch Association in November 2014.

The association’s chairman, Randy Coil, in an April 13, petition for vacation of county road, says problems include littering, illegal camping, off-roading, speeding, endangerment of livestock, theft “and many other reasons that I don’t have room to list here.” –Tony A.
