Jefferson County commissioner says county must address roads

Posted: Updated:
The flash floods this week did a number on Jefferson County Roads.

Dickey Springs Road and Lindsey Loop Road were two of the hardest hit roadways in the county.

County Commissioner Jimmie Stephen said it’s an easy fix. However, it may come down to the money.

County Commissioner Sandra Little Brown said, “That's just the problem. Because we don't have revenue generated. We lost the occupational tax we don't have the money, but we must find a way to make our roads safe we have to have safe road.”
