For the second time in two months my vehicle has been hit by a rock thrown from the darn county road trucks. First time my windshield was broken. This time it was just scratched.
Will the mayor get tired of buying vehicle parts before he starts making the gravel trucks secure their loads of rocks. We are paying for these repairs when we pay taxes so you would think the mayor would want to save a little money for us taxpayers.

Now let me make sure I fully understand your story. You mean to tell me that the MAYOR of Paragould, Mr Mike Gaskill has used taxpayer dollars to pay for windshields that were broken by rocks falling off of County road Department trucks? When your windshield was broken did they buy you a new windshield, and if so who do I contact to get mine fixed?

I went to the road dept and told them where it happened and they paid to have the windshield replaced.
I was pretty mad when I talked to them too.

The mayor has nothing to do with the county road department. The county judge is over them.

You're right guest. I should have said County Judge.

Our roads are pitiful. The pot holes and wash outs are bigger and worse than ever, the paved county roads have been patched by what looks like 2 year olds, then to top it all off---they haul this big rock in that cars -like I drive- can barely make it through it after they just dump it on the road... road graders were STOPPED at one point during the year so Mr Shipman could get FEMA to see how "bad" it was... & when I finally say something to someone at the road department, i'm told FEMA isn't going to give us the money for that.... let me tell ya something....I didn't vote for FEMA .. no other County Judges have had this much problem keeping the roads fixed, so why the hell does he? I can't wait until election time when we can get someone in there who is worth a damn. ANYTHING is better.

At least you got a new windshield out of the deal. The more people that complain and go up there, the better.
