BOCC Approves New Street ‘Mossy Oak Drive’ In Molino

October 10, 2017

The Escambia County Commission recently approved a new street name for a private road in Molino.

They approved the street name “Mossy Oak Drive,” for a private road running east off of the 5500 block of North Highway 29 and 140 feet south of Chance Road. Otto Wallace, the only property owner impacted, signed a petition requesting the street name.

The road naming will cost the county $446.90 for a new street sign.

    Private road – should mean that the private individual pays for sign.

    $447 for a street sign for a PRIVATE road, yet the road department will not fix the stop sign someone ran over in my neighborhood because it’s not county maintained??

    The actual sign cost $40 and the Post another $30 but $376.90 is Shipping and Handling.

    So a private road by one person can get a named street with a $500 sign made. I think I will petition my driveway for “ALEX”2
