Rockland and SIYC Road issues.  Sam Smoak, Charleston Green, discussed problems and suggested the following course of action.

Rockland: Rain and traffic has washed the road out.  Driving lane lower then shoulder.  Remove organic material and bring to center.  Crown road/ bring shoulder down.  Top with sandy fill so water can drain.  Possible aggregate substance, in sections, to cut down on future maintenance.  Once crowned, potentially the road may only need to be graded yearly. Dirt on Joanie’s side. 

SIYC Road: Rain and traffic also deteriorating this road.  Crown road in sections.  Bring in shell sand for top/ fill.  Crushed concrete at asphalt entrance. 

Mayor requests the project to be priced in phases. Initial phase would take 3 days +/-.
