I was thinking Jerry Bargo was the road farming that he went out and checked the roads and told the person in that district what to fix. maybe I am wrong.

The county is not supposed to do work on driveways. That is the homeowners responsibility. If three or more houses share a driveway, the county can help out up to the point where the first house turns off. All of this driveway county work is illegal and should be reported. Small town politics at its best, vote buying in other words.

It's pitiful that they have let the cemeteries go by the way side, but I guess they think that the deceased don't vote!

We elect these idiots and nothing gets done until its time to vote. Why can't they do their job from day one instead of waiting until its time to count the votes. Remember, we elected these people. We can un-elect them too.

Also if the road has been given a Street Name sign designator where the road is listed as a named and registered road it is authorized for maintenance. Some roads have name signs that are private but they are not registered with the county as a county road. If the road you live own has a County Registered listing it is authorized for county maintenance, Even if you are the Only house on that road.

JM Hall talk to him, he's the one who calls the shots as to where the roads get fixed or not. Call the the Court House, Ask for the Judge Excutive... Good Luck, he's only gonna fix what he wants to fix in Knox County !!! What a Joke...
