Is this the new work plan for Public Works? Is the goal to find a dirt road and put gravel on it even though no one lives on the road while ignoring the roads that actually have inhabitants?

completely ignoring the fact that there were no ditches and they were all overgrown,
and completely ignoring the fact the road sides had not been cut in quite some time.
When they got to Faulkner Rd., they started laying down gravel.
and more gravel, but ignored the ditches, the bushes on the side of the road, and the speed limit sign that could hardly be read because of the bushes.
Then most of the rest of the road looked as it usually did–narrow and overgrown and not taken care of by the Public Works Dept.
Faulkner Rd. is 2.4 miles long, with no houses on it. Why was gravel used on this road when the county manager has told the BOC on two occasions that they really needed another $100,000 in gravel (that was not included in the budget). Who makes these decisions and why are they continuing to be made?
Contact your commissioner and ask him why are we wasting gravel on roads like this and is there enough gravel for the roads that people actually live on?
