"Some of them have lived there for 40-plus years, and we have fire departments and police departments within a mile," Graley said. "I understand the rural routes, but we each have street addresses."
Owens said many of the newer subdivisions had been grandfathered into the ordinance because their numbering systems fell into compliance, and the reason Graley's neighborhood had received notice was because the contractor had found a duplicate address on Cleveland Drive, a lot that had likely been divided, which created 2217 Cleveland Drive and 2217A Cleveland Drive.
The commission will address the possibility of exempting unincorporated areas during its next regular meeting Nov. 12.
The commission also voted to approve the payment of $133,205.84 to GDY LLC over the course of two fiscal years on behalf of the Putnam County Health Department. Gary Young, owner of GDY LLC and former landlord of the Health Department, said that his company has requested rent through this month to cover the time spent correcting modifications made to the PCHD's former offices.
"If we were to enforce the obligations outlined under the current lease, it would be more than $300,000," Young said. "We are reaching out in an effort to bring resolution to this in such a manner that we get reimbursed for the repair cost of the space, which we were just able to get marketable again.
"We're not the bad guys in this. I think all of us, under the circumstances and with how the Health Department has landed, have some issues. I just wanted to bring resolution to it."
The county will hold a surplus property sale Nov. 2 at 11 a.m. at the courthouse. Most of the property is from the PCHD, and includes county vehicles and office furniture and supplies.
