County taking out loan to pay for road projects, equipment
Published: June 12,2012
WASHINGTON COUNTY — Washington County will borrow $1.5 million to repair local roads and buy road-working equipment, The Delta Democrat Times reports.
Supervisor Troy Wesley Sr. says board members did a tour of the county roads about three or four months ago and assessed what roads were in bad shape.
Wesley says the county expects to buy six dump trucks to help with the roadwork, which covers much of the county. Wesley says over a period of time, it may cost more to repair equipment than to invest in new equipment.
Board president Paul H. Watson Jr. said ensuring the safety and maintenance of the county roads for residents and travelers is important.
Watson says the work is expected to be complete by 2015.
