Jackson County Won't Fund Paving Of Unimproved Roads

Going forward, Jackson County will no longer kick in funding for the paving of unimproved and gravel roads. At their weekly meeting, the Board of Commissioners made their decision, leaving the funding of such projects completely in the hands of citizens. According to a report in the Medford Mail Tribune, Jackson County Roads and Parks Director John Vial said "It's purely a budget and cost issue." Others echo that sentiment, pointing to dwindling federal money from timber receipts. The reserves for paving projects need be held for emergencies, Vial added.
