An open letter to County Judge Frank Weaver

    Dear editor:

I would like to bring to your attention the condition of one of Madison County’s roads.   

Over this weekend, I invited my mother, who is 72,  to our home with her small great-grandchildren. She resides in Lowell and has no need for a four-wheel drive vehicle. County Road 4685 has become very dangerous and impassable for her to navigate.

We also have a small tree down that needs attention.

Several calls have been made to you, your office and the road department on the condition of this road. It has been too long to remember the last time this road has had any attention. To my knowledge, it has  been close to a year.  

I indeed understand that the number of dirt roads are plentiful in Madison County. Yet during recent searching for additional property in Madison County, I have personally observed that the conditions in the middle and northern part of the county are in exceptional conditions, graded effectively and some even have coverage of white gravel. Is this due to the population of residents?

I would appreciate a time frame on which I can expect the requested services, as I enjoy having my family visit our beautiful part of Arkansas, yet I do not wish to cause them or their vehicles any harm or damage.
