Earnest talks county roads and improvements


While Lincoln County Judge Buddy Lynn Earnest admits he has other jobs, one of his primary responsibilities is to see that the county’s roads are taken care of.

Appearing on the Oldies 101.3 morning show last month, Earnest talked about the need for road graders, and appearing Tuesday, he said that problem has been solved.

He went on to say the graders “cost a lot of money.”

Earnest, who is seeking reelection this year, went on to talk about the challenges of keeping the roads up.

Earnest went on to say that Lincoln County budgets $150,000 annually for gravel and they have to be careful how they spend the money.
