Monroe County officials continue to clash over how to pay for road improvements.
Supervisors Billy Kirkpatrick and Doug Wiggins have gone on record opposing a $5,000,000 bond issue to pay for road improvements.
An attempt was made to gather signatures to bring the issue up for a vote but that effort failed.
Supervisors may consider borrowing $3,000,000 dollars to pay back over a ten-year period.
Supervisor Carole Crawford says while the county allocates $600,000 annually for road repairs, it falls short of the real needs that exist.
She says the county needs better roads to attract industry and new housing developments.
"We haven't done anything major on our roads for years. We desperately need to work on our roads. During our campaign last year, everybody complained about their roads. That's their number one concern, so we're trying to do what they've asked us to do," Crawford said.
Supervisor Doug Wiggins says borrowing fewer dollars with a faster payback sounds better, but his support still depends on how the money will be divided.
He says one or two districts should not receive significantly more money than others.
