MADISON TOWNSHIP -- The Madison Local School District plans on using two parcels of land to create a two-lane access driveway from Galaxie Drive into the parking lot at Mifflin Elementary School.

Richland county commissioners approved awarding the two parcels, both about a third of an acre, to the district during a meeting with district Supt. Rob Peterson. The county is not charging the district for the land.
