TO THE HONORABLE BOARD OF THE TOWNSHIP OF BENEDICT TOWNSHIP SANBORN COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA:
That the petitioners herein respectfully represent that they are the electors residing in the organized civil township of Benedict, county of Sanborn, State of South Dakota; and that as residents and electors of said township, they feel that the public convenience and necessity will be better served by the vacation of a roadway or highway that they are seeking to have vacated is described as being located, to-wit:
That existing public right-of-way which includes the statutory right-of-way and any right-of-way acquired by Deed(s) lying on the section line highway running north and south commonly known as 416th Avenue bordered by 230th Street on the south and 229th Street on the north, and bordered on the west by Section SE1/4 22 Township 107 North, Range 59, Benedict Township, Sanborn County, South Dakota and bordered on the east by Section SW 1/4 23, Township 107 North, Range 59, Benedict Township, Sanborn County, South Dakota; said road being approximately 66 feet in width and approximately one half (1/2) mile in length.
A portion of this roadway had been used but other portions have not, and, due to its location, and the expense of development as a roadway, your petitioners feel it will never be feasible or practical to develop, nor do your petitioners feel it will ever be further developed due to the terrain and limited use of the highway; and further your petitioners believe that it would be in the best interests of the public that these portions of the section line highway be vacated.
That existing public right-of-way which includes the statutory right-of-way and any right-of-way acquired by Deed(s) lying on the section line highway running north and south commonly known as 416th Avenue bordered by 230th Street on the south and 229th Street on the north, and bordered on the west by Section SE1/4 22, Township 107 North, Range 59, Benedict Township, Sanborn County, South Dakota and bordered on the east by Section SW1/4 23, Township 107 North, Range 59, Benedict Township, Sanborn County, South Dakota; said road being approximately 66 feet in width and approximately one half (1/2) mile in length.
