CLEVELAND - Paving several gravel roads in the county was discussed by the White County Commissioners at a meeting Monday.

At the end of that meeting, District 4 Commissioner Craig Bryant said, "We've talked and talked about it until we are blue in the face."

Bryant proposed to the commission that the county look at eight roads or sections of roads, getting bids for both triple surface (tar and gravel) and asphalt paving.

"We have come up with a preliminary list," Bryant said. "We're gonna do some bidding on them and we're going to see what we can do because we have made a commitment to the taxpayers and we've got the SPLOST money to do it and it's time."

"If we can pull this off, we will get a lot of people out of the dirt and mud this winter," Bryant said.

The commission agreed and will make the decision about what roads get paved when the bids come in.
