Problems Persist for Resident on Grand Bay Road

Problems Persist for Resident on Grand Bay Road

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama - For years residents on Grand Farms Road in Grand Bay have been fighting to get help maintaining their private road. They say every time it rains the road is flooded out. Thursday was no exception as multiple cars got stuck trying to pass.

Help may be near, as the county officials say they are willing to step in.

“The county can take the road over, but we have to have 100 percent of the people that live on the road to agree and sign a petition and then at that point I will submit it and try to get it pushed through and I am told we can probably do it, but right now we can’t get 100 percent of people to agree,” said Mobile County Commissioner Jerry Carl.

Neighbors say getting the road fixed is being held up by a couple of residents who won’t give up parts of their property.

“Two people that live on the road are holding it up. And it should be that the majority rules. But it doesn’t work that way,” said Robin Glass.

“We need right away. We need to take a little bit of their yard for the right away it’s just the way the system works then we can go in there and scrape it up and keep it maintained,” said Carl.
