Residents in Mill Spring will no longer be dodging pot holes or hauling gravel to fill in holes in streets. Streets were repaved last week.
Angela Clyburn, chairman of Mill Spring’s Board of Trustees, said that a grant funded the work.
Mill Spring has 11 streets in the village. All streets in the village received a new coat of asphalt. It has been many years since the streets had had a fresh coat of asphalt, according to sources.
The grant for the project was from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and was granted to fix streets after the last flood. Clyburn said that the Board of Trustees had worked on this project for two years.
“Now, if only, everyone will step up and maintain and respect them,” Clyburn stated. The Village of Mill Spring has about 189 residents, according to data from the 2010 Census.
