    Along with the $600000.00 plus the county gets from Essroc for there fines should help. You did not know the county gets this money. My understanding is yes they do. They will likely use it to hire more staff to do things like sell of life time naming rights for a few thousand dollars and thing like that. On that subject how much did the Rotarians pay to get there names stamped on the beach in Wellington?

    County Road 13 was worked on last year, and it is now literally falling apart. The problem’s are from Mitchell’s Cross Road then east to County Road 8. Hopefully there is some guaranty and the road can get resurfaced again

    Perhaps one of these days we will get funding for the much needed repairs on hwy 49 instead of the every day bandaids the County workers do on it…..
    When will we see that happen?
