Page 4 The Woodville Republican, Thursdays June 14, 2017 i:: ' :i' i:::' :; ::: Wilkinson County has many, many bridges that are closed and roads in disrepair. Some residents cannot even access their homes. With the county's lack of a tax base, declining federal and state funding and many other demands on our tax dollars, the supervisors and the county do not have adequate funds to efficiently and effectively ::/ operate five road districts and five sets of road equipment. 1"his campaign is one to give voters of the county the op- :i portunity to vote to require the county to operate under a uniform or unit system of road and bridge construction, repair and maintenance. The limited resources of the county have prevented it from doing little more than band-aid patches to our road and bridge infrastructure. It's time to change that failed system.
