Accusations made during commission meeting

Winston County Commission Chairman Roger Hayes notes that the subject of the U.S. Forest Service keeping up forestry roads is a sore subject to him.

DOUBLE SPRINGS  - Accusations were made that the Winston County Commission was not following through on their commitment to improve roads as well as being in violation of doing road work on federal property.
Kerry Clark, fire management officer with the U.S. Forest Service, who attended the meeting on behalf of County Road 4106 where he lives, approached Commission Chairman Roger Hayes and Commissioners Bobby Everett and David Cummings about claims the commission has failed to do upkeep on County Road 4106.
Prior to 2015, County Road 4106 was receiving grading and maintenance work at least twice a year, Clark told commissioners. “Since that time, it has really backed off,” Clark began. “We’re on a 23-month rotation right now.”
During 2016 and 2017, County Road 4106 received maintenance about once a year. “I am just curious if that’s the kind of problem throughout the county or  is that just a problem down there on my road?” Clark inquired.
Clark has met with Winston County Road Engineer Bryan Cheatwood and Bobby Everett, who is commissioner for his district, expressing his concerns about the issue.
