Someone please correct me if I am wrong but I think Overton County Road Superintendent has been vacant since the last election for the office. The county highway conditions reflect the vacancy.
the county must be saving for a rainy day.

i wonder at what point the state will step in and do something? i know there are bad roads county wide but allons has some of the worst roads in overton county. all i hear is that the county is broke? something needs to be done about this. on my road what they consider road work is two guys in a pickup with a shovel fixing a hole road work? get a life overton county!!!!!!!!!! why vote for the same two clowns that run every time? if i see that pic of a road being fixed in vietnam in a campaign ad one more time i'll puke! that was probably the last road he fixed anyway.

aperson only cares about getting re-elected just to get retirement....that is sad for the people of this county....the roads are in poor condition and the supervisors dont care either....all just want a check and retirement....they run around town and over the county doing personal business on county time.....why do they only work 4 days a week? i guess it's so the supervisor can log on fridays...they keep plenty of rock for all his logging friends...they never buy rock....never....cause they are logging buddies...

Don't blame anyone but the voters. It's the same for mostly all the positions, vote for them because they're known. They don't do nothing but they're known so they get voted in. Way to go Overton county - once again you have shown you're intelligence. This last election I didn't vote for anyone already in office. Except the sheriff.

one would hope that when the roads finally collapse and fall in something more than using a shovel will be done. chig and joe are one and the same. neither has done anything to improve the roads to any degree at all. it goes way back further also than that. i remember when geesling was in office he promised alot also but did nothing. he promised voters on our road that if he got back in office our road would be a top priority of his? 20 plus years later nothing has been done at all. the only thing that has been done is about 16 years ago yellow lines was painted? if their broke then shut down the department or ask for state assistance. it is way past time for something to be done. tower hill road is a disgrace also. i can say this if chig or joe run again they don't need to waste their time coming in the allons area asking for votes! it is hard to keep a set of shocks on your car as it is.

Not only do they repair the roads , THEY BUILD NEW ONES ! this county needs a new Highway Commissioner,
Chig was a republican Highway Commissioner and was no better than the Democrat we have now.
Sounds like a bad idea

Electing someone with a nickname like "Chig" doesn't sound like a good idea.

You're kidding right ... Joe Garrett widened Allons Mountain. You remember how bad that winding road was? In the winter, you couldn't even come up or go down. I'm grateful for that. Chig exhausted all funds on new equipment which was useless because there was no money to even test it out. Couldn't even afford salt!

Just wait until the new 'county mayor' takes office. We'll have plenty of money to build new roads, repair the old ones, build new schools, revitalize the industrial park and many other great things. We'll have lower taxes. Senior property owners will pay no property taxes, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc. Life will be a utopia right here in good old Overton Co.

I think we can tell who DOES NOT read all they need before they express their hasty opinions "On Medicare". If you would have read the paper you would have known Road Superintendent was not this last election. Neither did you read all of my post which stated "the last election for that office". BRIGHT!!!!!!

Apparently I struck a nerve with you. Go ahead and let em all out in your next post.
You know all the choice words you use to describe someone when they say something you don't like. You know all those words you probably started using back in grade school. Go ahead and let em roll. Show us all your great intellect. And do tell us who is taking up space in that Road Superintendent Office. Yes I know but I want you to tell us who it is who takes up that space and oh yes draws a nice check I am sure. Go ahead.
