Name of 890-foot road to be changed

A name change for a short stretch of road was discussed, but not acted on at the Webster County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday.

The supervisors have proposed renaming a portion of road just 890 feet long. The north-south road National Avenue has a stretch of that length running east and west near the Humboldt County border. That stretch is currently labeled 100th Street. It would be renamed to National Avenue.

The supervisors will take up the matter next week.

Supervisor Merrill Leffler said the naming was essentially an error on the county’s part that should be corrected. It’s difficult to find addresses located on that 890-foot stretch of 100th Street, since it’s not connected to the existing 100th Street east of there.
