County supervisors on Monday approved the funding for the road plan which aims to repair and improve 16 roads.

There are nine roads that will be fully-funded by the county.

They include: Countryside Plantation, Stribling, Society Ridge, Gluckstadt, Rouser-Lubertha, Cherry Hill, Holmes Hollow, Old Trace North and Deerfield.

Copper Ridge, Yacht Club, Graceland North and County Line Road will receive work with a 50/50 match between the county and cities.

In addition, the county approved work on three state aid roads - Virlilia, Old Canton and North Old Canton.

The work on the non State Aid roads totals $3.5 million and supervisors asked how that would be funded.

Comptroller Shelton Vance said they could issue a bond or use already-borrowed money for other projects and issue a bond later for those projects which haven't begun.

"You can enter into some kind of new short-term borrowing today," he said. "We could use borrowed money we already have in the bank that was intended for other projects then replenish that money with borrowed money 6-9 months down the road."

District 3 Supervisor Gerald Steen motioned for the board to use an existing $5 million pool of cash to pay for these roads instead of issue short-term bonding.

Supervisors approved that plan 5-0. State aid roads were mentioned in a separate discussion and those roads were also approved unanimously.
