Road Visions For Council estimated there was 9,000 sq. yards of road to be repaired, but said he had only "eyeball- ed it", and since Martin had measured the road, he believ- ed the larger figure was accurate. McLaughlin also said that the best way to repair the road would be to scarify the asphalt, rework the base, and bring the road up to state specifications. The cost on this type of repair would run about $34,000 for the road in ques- tion, he said. But he esti- mated the road would hold up for at least 10 years. After hearing both pro- posals, the council decided there was not enough money in the budget to repair the roads this year. The city has set aside $11,000 for road repairs from federal revenue sharing funds. On motion from Council- man Sonny Bradley, the coun- cil voted to purchase asphalt mix and repair the holes in the existing road, to clean off the shoulders, and to make such repairs as is economical- ly possible, deferring major repairs until such time as the city has more money. a seal coated chug holes in rapidly heard two explain the cost of Athens present- costs of repair- known locally as Loop. included road which *First State Bank, he had measur- distance which square yards. two alternatives, $11,600 and he would apply an asphalt chip was also a he said, would sweep the the holes with oil a top coat for. would guar- for one year. figures were He said, frank- did not think the repaired satis- *that it would last he could get out $1.43 to yard.
