October 26-- The Georgia Department of Community Affairs has granted a request from the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners for funds to improve two roads near the Petross Community.
Commission Chairman Leland Adams, Commissioner Chad Kenney and County Manager Brandon Braddy accepted a check for $471,887 to help pay for drainage and paving upgrades on Largo Drive and Ashley Alley. Total cost of the project is estimated at $518,288 with the county paying a local share of $46,401. The project is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
Chairman Adams said, “Montgomery County has been very fortunate in the past to have paved several roads in Montgomery County because of this grant program. Dead River Road, Three Rivers Lane and Southland Drive are three roads in Montgomery County that have been paved with state community development funds. The commissioners and I are thankful to receive these grant funds for Largo Drive and Ashley Alley on Montgomery County’s behalf.”
The check was presented earlier this month during the Department of Community Affairs Fall Conference in LaGrange.
