  • County roads to be paved

    With $200,000 to spend toward paving county roads, magistrates decided to split the amount up evenly between their five districts, giving each $40,000 worth of blacktop.

    On the list of roads with the greatest needs were Hickory Lane, Shagbark Drive, Carrithers Lane, Rolling Trail, Lakeside Drive, Murphy Lane, Goose Creek Road and Hochstrasser Road. In some cases, the funds will only allow portions of these roads to be coated with new asphalt.

    Magistrate John Riley objected to the county having to pave roads that were promised to be completed by developers.
