THE LATEST ROAD DEAL MAKING--

THE NEXT PART OF JACKSON LAKE RD. WILL COST HOW MUCH?

Patching Jackson Lake Rd. for 2.25 miles will cost over $280,000 of county money and the State will give the county $145,000.  Patching all of Harvey Lane Rd. will cost $20,000 of county money and the State will give the county $110,000.  The county does not have this money and as Comm.  Pennamon points out it will take all contingency funds for 2 years. 

To get this passed Comm. Hill made a deal to vote for it so he could get a road in his district paved with county funds and no state dollars. 

There were also questions by Comm. Patrick about not getting bids for over $300,000 of paving.  The Public Works director said they could, but the quote he got was a good quote and he didn’t think the county should get bids.

TWG has now learned that there will have to be bids for these projects.
