“For her and her safety, I just think if they can make the roads less hazardous for her with the potholes and having to get her tires redone and having to get her car realigned,” O’Rourke said. “They just need to put a blacktop on Jones Road, It’s time to get this done.”
Northport Mayor John Hinton says in order to pave a dirt road, homeowners living on Jones Road must be annexed into the city limits.
“They can make a request, but we have a policy that’s like the law,” Hinton said. “We go by our policy and so they have to meet the policy requirements in order to be considered.”
Mayor Hinton also says there must be at least five homes on Jones Road and the road must be fifty feet wide in order to get paved.
