CHINA GROVE — The China Grove Town Council on Tuesday approved requests to permanently close portions of Eudy Road and Roberts Street.

A public hearing was conducted for both proposed road closures, but no one spoke during the public comment portion.

The portion of Eudy Road that will be permanently closed is from South Main Street to the railroad tracks. The closure on Roberts Street comprises the area between lots 7 and 8 of the subdivision of the J.A. Roberts Property.

Assistant Town Manager Franklin Gover said the Geographic Information System division of the county’s Information Technology Department alerted him that Eudy Road was located in three different sections, which could have posed a concern for 911 emergency services purposes.

The closing of the portions in question not prohibit anyone’s access, but instead determine which entity is responsible for maintaining that portion of the road.

Town council members also approved a request from Gover to change the name of a portion of Eudy Road to “Lutheran Chapel Road.” Lutheran Chapel Church is located at 135 Eudy Rd. in China Grove.

In other business:

  • The town council approved a bid from William F. Huneycutt’s CPA firm, located in Albemale, to conduct China Grove’s 2020-21 audit.
  • Town Manager Ken Deal said he is considering implementing temporary closure and locking of the front door of the China Grove Town Hall to limit exposure to individuals amidst the current COVID-19 pandemic. Deal also said he is “looking closely” at the town’s budget and hopes the countywide sales tax revenue from local stores is enough to sustain the hit taken by businesses in China Grove.
