During Hopkins County Commissioners’ Court Public Form, a resident of Precinct 2 asked the court to put in writing that repairs will be made to a segment of roadway she uses for travel from home to other areas in the county. Commissioner Precinct 2, Mike O’Dell told the resident that he does plan to repair her road before the end of his term as Commissioner. O’Dell has two more years.
He noted that the roadway in question is in the floodplain and FEMA will not fund that segment of roadway. He stated that he has repaired the area before but that it washes out with every flooding rain. He stated that he cannot just redo the oil but that it will take a rework. Until he has funds and time, he will continue to place gravel on the roadway and replace it as it washes out. He also offered to assist her in travel when she cannot go in and out at the location.
In other action, the court approved legal software that will be used by district and county courts. They also made appointments to the civic center board.
