Former judge speaks out about Maddux Road, calling it ‘unsafe’

(Continued)

The letter further states that Riley told Bennett the road would be rebuilt by Jan. 1, 2014, which Riley also denies.

An April 7 conversation with Precinct 2 Commissioner Craig Peacock is mentioned in the letter, stating that Peacock told Bennett that he’d heard the bid for the road had come in at $1.5 million, but only $1 million was available. Bennett said Peacock told him he thought Precinct 2 could do the work for the lesser amount and was considering getting started this summer.

“My neighbors and I want a proper road,” Bennett wrote, saying he asked Peacock whether the county had the expertise and equipment to deal with the road’s drainage and safety issues.
