Lubbock County Residents Have Option to Pave Their Own Roads
Many people who live in the county say the downfall is the roads, but now those residents can pay to pave them themselves.
Every time it rains, NewsChannel 11 hears from county residents, who complain about their muddy roads. Friday, county commissioners say they're working toward a solution.
"In the past, citizens would donate some dollar amount to road improvement not even coming near the cost of covering the road improvement, but the county had a lot more money back then - in years past," said Bill McCay, Lubbock County Commissioner. "Currently, we do not have enough money to maintain to our level and to the quality that we would like to see so this donation policy just fine tunes that if someone wants to improve the road, they need to bear the cost of that improvement; just like developers when they put in subdivisions, to pave those roads."
