Euclid Parker appeared before the Board re: Certain people encroaching on a street in Pitman, which was once the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad right of way, with obstructions that constitute a nuisance. Mr. Goodson said he has discussed this with Mr. Parker. Mr. Theus suggested that the Sheriff be asked to have the street opened in cooperation with the Health Department advising that septic tank should be installed. Mr. Duncan advised that the fact that this is a prescriptive road would have to be established. Mr. Parker said it is the old County road that runs along the railroad right of way in Pitman, adjoining Block A of the Town of Pitman and has been used for more than 20 years as a public road and is therefore a public road by prescriptive right. Mr. Babb stated he has been here 30 years and knows that it is a prescriptive road, WHEREUPON, on motion of Commr. Babb seconded by Commr. Simpson and carried, the following Resolution was adopted:
WHEREAS, it has been brought to the attention of the Board of County Commissioners that there has existed a roadway traversing the old right of way of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Right of Way, and adjoining Block A, in the Town of Pittman; and that said road has been used by the public generally for a period of more than twenty (20) years last past; and
WHEREAS, it has further been brought to the attention of the Board of County Commissioners that certain encroachments have been erected in said roadway, without any permit from Lake County and should be removed; that said encroachments are unsightly and interfere with the free passage of traffic along said road.

Mr. Goodson said he would go to see the party again and force him to move the trailers. Mrs. Knee said the road in the subdivision is in bad shape and would like to know how to turn it over to the County for maintenance. Mr. Babb said he would scrape the road soon.
orange hill estates
Plat of this Subdivision was presented by Paul Huff stating the subdivision is owned by J. V. Fowler, Frank DeBantulo and Paul Huff. The following were also presented: Letter from Lake County Health Department and title insurance policy #FE-37099 issued by Title & Trust Company of Florida, showing title free and clear of any encumbrances, except taxes and revision in the State of Florida for petroleum rights. Mr. Duncan said the streets are wide – meeting requirements and adjoins SR-44. Mr. Goodson stated the Zoning Commission has accepted an application for re-zoning. Mr. Duncan stated outside of the Zoning Regulations this plat is acceptable, but should be held up until the Zoning Commission takes action. Therefore, Mr. Huff was advised to bring the Plat back later.
Mr. Chas. Anderson appeared before the Board and stated he cannot comply with the details required by the Board re plats. Do not know which way to turn. Cannot sell off a piece of land. Do not know what to do. Mr. Goodson stated that in 1957 Mr. Anderson undertook to record this plat in Groveland Farms, but was unable to do so as not all 50 feet wide streets in the Plat. The dedication is only 25 feet wide streets. Access has been maintained on dedicated streets by the County. Mr. Anderson should acquire a 50-foot wide strip and make a plat with 50-foot streets. Mr. Anderson wants a building permit on part of this tract on which he attempted to record the subdivision. The 25-foot access road will have to be kept open for people who live down in there. Will have to have a 50-foot right of way through his property all the way through the entire subdivision. Mr. Anderson was advised to get it platted with 50 foot streets. Mr. Theus suggested in this case looks like a hardship case. Mr. Cowart said a clay road has been in there for years. Eight or ten families are living in there, and I feel like this is a hardship case.
Board adjourned for lunch and reconvened at 1:45 p.m.
Mr. Phil Williams and Mr. Hawthorn appeared before the Board re: A road into their property in South Lake County right off of road 27 about one-half mile.

A lot of groves to be taken care of and no road to get us in and out. He said O. T. Cook has a clay pit and would sell the County clay. Commr. Dykes said we do not have money to pay for the clay, but if the people will get the clay, he will haul it. Mr. Cowart and Mr. Theus said they will help. Mr. Hawthorn said he would give a right of way over his land, bulldoze and grade it up. Mr. Duncan was instructed to check the right of way and notify Mr. Williams and Mr. Hawthorn.
