Bush Hogging and potholes continue to dominate the recent Henry County Highway Department workload .

“We have crews continually working on potholes throughout the county,” Road Supervisor Richie Chilcutt told members of the road board Monday afternoon.

September’s 30-day work plan calls for patching roads and trimming limbs alongside many county roads. Also planned are repairs of a hole on Bunn School Road near Castle, a dip at the substation on Elkhorn Road and culverts on Three Bridges Road.

Commissioner Cody Craig added potholes on Hathaway Road, while commissioner Michael Parker said Tennessee Drive in the Country Junction area needs attention as well as culverts on Hagler Bridge Road.

Commissioner Leroy Morris asked about paving being done on Jones Bend Road Extended.

Chilcutt said that was in the city and being done by the city.

Chairman Bobby Milam reported that a Sulphur Well Academy Road sign was gone.

Wages of almost $139,000 and expenses of nearly $190,000 were reported and approved for August.
