County Officials Accept Partial Federal Money For Roads Projects

Federal money is now available for certain projects here in Hall County, but local engineering officials are only taking part of the available funding so it can retain control of how certain projects are built.

 

Hall County Engineer Steve Riehle was on the KRGI Morning Show Monday. He says much of the money would go to bridge projects and also allow Hall County to dictate where the funding will go.

 

Riehle says while they are thankful for the money they receive from the federal government, the county would be much better served to control how the money is spent compared to having federal authorities telling them what to do.
