The Oktibbeha County Central Shop is home to three maintenance crews, a sign shop, and repair shop staff who make sure county roads are maintained. The shop works closely with the five county supervisors and the County Administrator’s Office to respond to citizen concerns.
- How far will the county go up my drive when gravelling the entrance of my drive?
The county measures the right of way 50 feet from the center of the road to each side of the road. If within those 50 feet, the entrance of your drive is the first 5 or 10 feet, the county will gravel. Anything outside of those 50 feet is illegal.
If your drive is an official bus turnaround, then the rule is different.
- How do I go about getting an address for my new residence?
The Golden Triangle Planning and Development District, located at 106 Miley Drive in Starkville, is where you will get your address.
