BRONSON - It will not be until after some dust settles that a road to allow access to the Adamsville Cemetery is built, according to information released at the Levy County Board of County Commissioners' Dec. 18 meeting.

J. Rollin Hudson Jr. tried to give the county a 15-foot easement off of U.S. Alt. 27, but County Road Administrator Bruce Greenlee said there are too many problems with the project to accept any easements yet.

There are potential unmarked graves under the proposed roadway, and there is a dispute over who owns the deed for some of the land in the area. Greenlee also said Hudson had promised a 30-foot easement earlier.

Hudson questioned whether he had promised a 30-foot easement, but Greenlee said he had Hudson's signature on a paper dedicating the land for the needed access to the cemetery.

Another 30-foot easement will be needed from the property owner or owners on the other side of the proposed road too, Greenlee said.

Other county staff reinforced the point about needing a 60-foot wide strip to put a road and cul-de-sac to the cemetery.
