Precinct 1 Hopkins County Commissioner Beth Wisenbaker says it’s been a real challenge trying to keep county roads in any kind of shape with all the rain we’ve had. She says this is the wettest year she’s seen in her 18 and a half years in office. Ms. Wisenbaker says she has already had to spent funds she was counting on using this summer. She says pot holes are numerous and are deeper than usual.
Regarding the pot holes, Wisenbaker said the oil sand has to be placed over a rock filled pothole due to depth of the holes. “It’s been a challenge,” stated Wisenbaker.
