Rain Delays County Roadwork

Although welcoming the rain, the precipitation has created difficulties for Hopkins County Commissioners as they continue to work their way through road damage done in previous flooding as well as normal maintenance needs.

For Commissioner Precinct 1, Beth Wisenbaker a planned oil mix for one of her roads cannot be accomplished today. Wisenbaker says she now has access to the needed oil to mix the for road work and will begin as soon as weather permits.

For most precinct crews, wet weather means clearing roadways and ditches of dead trees and fallen limbs, mechanic work on equipment, replacing signs, and selling scrap metal to recycle and replenish the precinct budget with the revenue received from the sale.
