Marshall County officials are not the only people reacting to the emergency declaration. County residents are voicing their concerns over the poor conditions of local roads.
“There’s a lot of potholes and stuff,” said Alicia Leverknight, a Marshall County resident. “It makes it hard for parents, emergency vehicles, you know, people to get to work and stuff, to daycare because my daughter, she goes out 4th street to the daycare out there and personally, the roads out there, like half the road is gone. It makes it very difficult and dangerous.”
Some people even came up with potential sources of funding that could help fix this critical situation.
“I think some of the lottery money should be used on it,” said Al Petrone, who lives in Marshall County. “You know, people play a lot on the lottery and I think they should use a lot of that on that. I really do. But the roads are so bad. It’s going to take a lot of money.”
