It sure is piling up at the Walmart parking lot saw it today. If the wind blows there will be a big mess to clean all of that up.

Also why can't the parking lots up by Walgreens and Burger King be repaired? Its so rough and has been that way a long time. There are also big pot holes in and around Walmart. I think someone could do a better job. We sure pay enough city taxes when we eat out!

I know a lot of people travel through burger king parking lot, but it is just that, a parking lot and not a public road. their parking lot isn't the cities responsibility, it's the owners. the owners of burger king are too tight to spend any money on it. that burger king building is probably the oldest restaurant building in Barbourville and all they do for the place is throw a coat of paint on it every few years and think they are doing something. that building should be condemned. the restaurant and parking lot is nothing but a eye sore, and i don't need to start talking about their food because most people know how disgusting they are there. don't get me wrong, i love burger king food, just not the one here in barbourville. the county should make them fix the parking lot, because that will be the only way they will do it.

The city or county can not work on people's buildings or parking lots even a idiot like Darren knows that much .

The roads there needs work not the parking lot I should have said. It goes to Walgreen, Pizza Hut and other businesses like the tanning salon, car wash, pawn shop, barber shop, State Farm Insurance and etc. I am not an idiot just tired of being jarred todeath when I try and drive to one of these businesses.

I don't think its the county that has to fix pot holes to these businesses and the same up at the Walmart road. We have to travel the roads and they are marked as roads with arrows on them as to which direction to go. I don't care who owns them or does the repairs as long as they get them done. Its a shame Knox Co can't do any better than they are doing. They want everyones business yet they won't upkeep anything around here.

None of the restaurants in town give good service anymore their food is no good or seems warmed over or cold. I don't know what is wrong with all of them the health dept needs to be doing more inspecting.

The main road is dangerous to get to any of these businesses there is no turning lanes and it is safer to travel through these roads I am talking about. If they won't fix them at least make a safe turning lane from the Cumberland Gap Parkway to get to where we need to go. State Farm Insurance expects you to pay your bill through their drive through window and yet its on the wrong side of the road and very dangerous. The traffic coming through that way will hit you while you are trying to pay your bill. I don't know why they think they are too good to have you come inside to pay your bill. They sure like to take your money when you offer it. Everyone should mail their payments to the main offices and complain how dangerous it is to try and pay at the their drive through window.

I am just fed up with how this whole town operates and gasoline is too high to go much of anywhere else at least for me it is. I don't live in town and have to travel a long way to town.

I think the restaurants own these roads not the city or even the county even west should know that

This road goes to all the stores in that little shopping center or whatever you call it. Its a mess and someone either the city or county or state needs to do their jobs and repair them. Its a shame and disgrace to our county to look like this in the city limits. Its even behind and around the dentist office there.

Someone needs to come and look at this and get it worked on. We are destroying our vehicles running through it almost daily. These are roads people not parking lots. I missaid it earlier was just trying to get some attention to it. Its dangerous trying to turn anywhere on main highway. They need to put in turning lanes or do something to avoid all the accidents that are going to happen and maybe save someones life. I guess that isn't important though until it happens to someone they all know.

Please someone else complain and show them we mean business. There is even a big pot hole right there where you come out of Walmart parking lot onto the old US 25-E and the traffic coming from the other old US 25-E has to travel right by this so its considered a state or county road. How much does it cost to fix a few pot holes whoever supposed to take care of them?
