Forest access road purchase still a future possibility
It has been more than three years since Land Commissioner Josh Stevenson received a petition asking Cass County to purchase land and reopen a forest access road, and now Deerfield Township residents are wondering if the county has given up.
The access road at the end of 16th Street Northwest of Deerfield crosses private property owned by G.J. Johnson Family LLC of Montana. In 2010 or earlier the owners closed the road.
