If you live at the beginning of a four mile road, are you required to pay for repair of the complete road???
Also would like to thank you for this information/link. Very helpful about how roads are suppose to be maintained and why. Also the law regarding the cost of repairs cannot exceed 1% of property value. Great stuff, again hats off to you.
