Petition to have my road reinstated on the maintained county road map for Scott County ,TN

Alfred Shannon Road is located in Glenmary, Tennessee in Scott County.  My grandfather and his family grew up on this road that their father Alfred Shannon constructed..

  In the 1970's my grandfather John Shannon bought a piece of property off of his father Alfred to build a home and raise his family.  The house is located at the end of Alfred Shannon road and for many years this road, in its entirety, was established as a maintained county road.  However about 10 years ago our section of the road that goes to our house was magically taken off of the maintained county road list and placed on the unmaintained county road list. Because of neighbors saying our home was abandoned.. which was a lie So the first half of the road is county maintained and graveled as needed still and our section hasn't had gravel in a very long time and has been up to us and our family to maintain.   The  blatant lie regarding the rd has resulted in this getting so bad that my daughter cannot even go to school here in Robbins because of lack of transportation and because the road conditions are so bad that a bus cannot get to our house... the neighbors refuse to let the bus turn around in their driveway they went as far as fencing off the turn around to further stop the bus..The goal of this petition is to present it to the Scott County Commissioners and petition them to add our section of road back to the maintained county road list, so that if an ambulance or other emergency  vehicle needed to get up the road that the could get to us in time to save a life.  One life was already lost because of this,so please help us not to lose anymore. We simply would like to be able to get to our property and have our road maintained so that a school bus or emergency vehicle could get to our property.  We just want to raise awareness to our county officials and show the support we have from the community to have our road maintained and the whole road in its entirety added back to the maintained county road list.  Thank you for your continued support!
