Commissioners but Patrick that Jackson Lake Rd should have first
priority to all State
How much more money does the county
plan to spend on Jackson
Lake Rd? We are
talking about the half of Jackson
from Hwy 212 to Hwy 16. You can forget
the other side because only Turtle Cove and its thousands of residents
to Comm. Bernard who controls each and every BOC meeting.
Lake Rd has had first priority for 2009,
now 2011 road money.
Comm. Bernard had his votes lined up
today and after letting
Charles Hill add Aikenton
(where he lives) to the current list, Jack read the list of roads to be
submitted to the State for state money.
Then he said, “Jackson Lake Rd is the number one
priority.” This means that any money
received from the
State for roads should go to Jackson Lake Rd again.
Every commissioner but Patrick voted
for this, including
Pennamon who made a big deal out of saying he thought money should be
other roads besides Jackson
Lake Rd. and it shouldn’t be the
primary road at the
last meeting. He somehow changed his
mind between meetings.
Other roads besides Jackson Lake Rd
the list were Marben Farms and Liberty
Church added by Patrick. Goolsby Road,
Middlebrooks Road, Brazey Road, and Rock Eagle Road added by Pennamon,
Road added by Hill, and Calvin Road and Barr Bridge Road which were
the list. Cox added no roads.
