A question of ownership and access in Bethel road dispute

A family in Bethel is blocking access to one of the city’s main streets.  They’re trying to prevent the dirt road from becoming an impassable, swampy mess during and after it rains.  The barricade is entirely legal, because the family own’s the native allotment that  includes the road. They have the city behind them, but they’re frustrating some residents who rely on it to get around town.
