Supervisor Henry Johnson returned Saturday evening from Neillsville having finished his work on the county board. The new office of highway commissioner was created and Harry Hewett elected to fill it. A system of county roads was mapped out and $10,000 raised by the board to build and maintain the roads. The commissioner’s salary of $1,000 was also raised. The main road north and south and the Eaton-Warner town line road through this city are part of the county system. W.C. Thoma of Weston was elected to succeed Ole Samuelson as supervisor of the assessments. The business that interests Greenwood most was the securing, largely by efforts of Supervisor Johnson, of over $2,000 from the county bridge fund to help pay for the improvements on the river bridge. Last year the county board allowed $1,500 for this work and it was only through persistent and skillful work by Mr. Johnson that any more was allowed by the board.
