Residents ask for portion of road to be paved


A group of Laclede County residents want the county to pave a section of Rustic Drive that ends north of Route MM.
The Laclede County Commission heard the proposal at its preliminary budget hearing Wednesday.  The commission holds the hearing for members of the public who have spending suggestions.
Bill Persy told the commission that the current gravel road is difficult to maintain and is unsafe. He  said traffic often travels the road at speeds of 60 to 70 miles per hour. 
“We’re asking for pavement from where it ends just south of Hideaway where the pavement ends up to Heritage,” he said.
Persy said they had an estimate from Willard Asphalt that the paving would cost about $40,000.
