Town makes Dodge Hill Road official

B y Jaime Thomas

The sign says Dodge Hill Road and locals know it as Dodge Hill Road, but Washington County knows the South Granville right of way simply as Dodge Road.

At a Town Board meeting Thursday night, officials passed a resolution to officially call the road Dodge Hill. This information will go to the county, who will be able to change it in their system.

Town Supervisor Matt Hicks said the action stemmed from concern that emergency responders might not be able to find a person calling 911. First, there is a Dodge Hill Road in Whitehall and secondly, the county’s computer system and GPS might not direct a responder to the correct area.

“It’s basically just cleaning up paperwork to make it all straight,” Hicks said. “This is to avoid any confusion.”

Also during the meeting, the board named Todd Smith as vice president of the Planning Board, a position that has been open for a while.

Additionally, the board set a public hearing for the March 13 meeting to renew a Time Warner Cable franchise for the Granville area, which runs out in 2014.

Because of inclement weather, a number of officials were not present so it was “very quick,” Hicks said.

The next regular meeting will take place on Thursday, March 13 at 7 p.m. in the town offices.
