Howard County commissioners voted to chop off $2,000 from a recently approved road access permit during a special meeting Monday.
In August, commissioners approved a fee of $4,500 for all new access entrances which intersect county roads for commercial purposes â€” except agricultural related industries. The construction of the entrances are required to conform with county road and bridge department requirements.
