The gating of a handful of roads in the Linton area by a logging company is the subject of litigation that is scheduled for a jury trial in Trigg County Circuit Court next April.

That is what Trigg County Attorney Randy Braboy told members of the Trigg County Fiscal Court and residents of those roads when the Fiscal Court met Monday evening. Shawn Underwood and other Linton residents of Donnie Lane, Fire Tower Road, Skinner Road, McCoy Hollow Road and McNichols Road were there to find out the status of having those roads included in the county road system.

During Fiscal Court meetings from early 2009, many of the same Linton residents said that River Oak (which has recently been bought by Timbervest) had put gates up on the roads in question, blocking access to their properties.

Braboy said Petey Rogers, attorney for several of the Linton residents, wrote him a letter last week asking that the road be adopted into the county system. Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries said Fire Tower Road already has a CR (County Road) number.

“We wouldn’t want to take any action that would be a detriment to our lawsuit next April,” said Braboy, who added that he’ll speak to Rogers about the overall plan for the case. “The real answer will come out of the jury trial.”
