“We’re still cleaning up,” District 3 County Commissioner Rusty Sullivan said. He said storms and the resulting debris have created lots of work, but District 1 crews came over to help his crews on one project.
“We’re all helping each other. There’s no real boundaries on this now,” Sullivan said. “Johnson grass is already waist high, so we’re behind the 8-ball.”
