HUMBOLDT — Bill and Sharon Barton have a chore ahead of them. In order to negotiate a route to property they own just outside Humboldt’s city limit to the east, they must clear small trees, limbs and brush.

Involved is a lane a couple of blocks long, that while not officially a street, was once graded by the city, said Bill Barton.

Humboldt City Attorney Fred Works pointed out that 13th Street — the strip of ground in question — was designated to continue north to the Barton property but was never opened as a street. Consequently, whatever gravel — back when the Neosho’s rock was dredged for roads and streets – found on the lane was put their unofficially.
