Henry County Commission to borrow money for road repairments


HENRY COUNTY (WDHN) — Roads in Henry County have been a continuing issue for quite a while.

There are roughly 700 miles of road in Henry County.

Recently the Henry County Commission has come to the conclusion to borrow money through a bond issue.

The bond issue will be about four million dollars and it’s set to be approved at the July 13th meeting.

David Money says there are many roads that need the work and you should see some activity around April or May next year.

“One thing I stress to the commission was to only borrow what can you pay back I know counties that borrow money from 15 to 20 years and the time you pay that money off those same roads need more work,” David Money said.

Money says they are working diligently to make residents happy so stay patient.
