Supervisors discuss paving at bi-monthly meeting

The Jefferson Davis County Board of Supervisors met Monday for their second July meeting. Most of the meeting was spent discussing the upcoming paving project for the county. Paving will begin in District 5 on July 27, but could be delayed due to weather conditions. Equipment and manpower from all five districts will assist in the paving until roads in each district have been completed. “It will take all of us together to have enough trucks and men to haul the rock, run the equipment and help with traffic,” said District 1 Supervisor Corky Holliman. “It takes all of us working together.”

The Supervisors ask that you use caution in the areas where workers and equipment are present.

The most traveled roads with the worst road conditions in each district will be resurfaced, according to the Supervisors.
