Johnson County & City of Tecumseh

Johnson County & City of Tecumseh

The Johnson County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on its one and six year road plan for 2020 during the February 18th meeting, beginning at 8:45 a.m.

The County Roads Department struggled to accomplish some of the projects scheduled for the 2019 county road plan due to the mixture of unforgiving conditions.

“The quick thawing of the frost out of the ground and the rain amounts that started in the spring and seemed to keep coming throughout the summer was a challenge,” said Matt Schaardt, Johnson County Roads Superintendent. “Johnson County was declared into Federally Declared disaster 4420 and before we knew it we were tasked with fixing flooding or drainage issues around the county. A lot of time and funding was focused on repairing the damaged roads and culverts that were affected by the large amounts of precipitation,” Schaardt added.

Cook Couple Attend LSU Football Championship to Cheer on Grandson Joe Burrow LSU Quarterback

The Pardes had planned to drive down a couple days early, but a winter storm rolled in with predictions of bad weather all the way there, so they backed out on that idea. Luckily, they were able to fly down for the game on Monday.

Wayne and Marianne did not get to see their grandson after the game. Marianne explained that only people who were authorized were allowed on the field.
