WARNER ROBINS -- Motorists along Moody Road soon should start to see it tidied up a little better.
The Houston County Commission voted Tuesday to pay for an additional inmate work crew for the newest section of the Moody widening project -- from just south of Ga. 96 to Ga. 127.
The contract approved Tuesday runs from March 1 to June 30, which is the remainder of the fiscal year. A new contract will be sought for the full year starting July 1. The full year of the contract with McEver Probation Detention Center is $39,500.
McEver is a minimum security state corrections facility in Perry that mostly houses probation violators, said Commission Chairman Tommy Stalnaker. The facility provides eight other inmate crews that maintain county roads.
Stalnaker said motorists along Moody should start to see a difference, especially in the summer when grass is growing.
