County's Best Interests at Heart
In advocating a bond issue to secure funds to bo used in constructing
two main thoroughfares in Montgomery County of permanent road build
ing material, under the provisions of the now State Road Law, tho Ad
vocato has the best interests of our citizens at heart and believes it has
pointed out a way whereby we may securo hard surfaced roads running
North nnd South and East and West,' at a cost to our citizens of ONLY
THE INTEREST on a $300000 bond isjsuo for'a few years when tho
county will be rc-imburscd by" tho State as provided by law. In our opinion
this is a rare opportunity and ono that we do not see how our people can
afford to overlook. The cost per year to land owners would bo empara
tivcly small during tho years tho bonds were being floated. For instance,
if a man owns a 200-ncro farm assessed at $100 per aero the cost to him
would amount to only $40 per year. Why, one broken spring or axle to
his automobile, caused by our rough roads, would amount to that much,
to say nothing of tho increased value of land resulting from good roads.
In its position Tho Advocato is firm in its opinion that tho road would
bo worth many times what it would costf.nnd believe theft many of those
who are opposed to the measure will live to see tho dny when they will
regret having been mislead in tho matter. All of tho information given
through these columns has been secured from Mr. Boggs, tho State Road
Engineer, the highest authority on this subject in Kentucky, nnd direct
from tho New Road Law.
If our citizens will vote the proposed .bond issue we feel confident that
after tho roads have been built a new day will dawn for Mt. Sterling and
Montgomery County. You will doubtless recall tho timo when Mt. Ster
ling had a chance to securo the L. & E. "Railroad, and wo alt know what a
tremendous loss that failure has been to our community.
Tho Advocate is for anything that will redound to the betterment
of local conditions and has frequently stated through its columns that
if it could be shown that tho proposed bond issue was not for tho best
interest of all concerned it would gladly change its course in the matter,
but to this good hour we have never had anyone opposed to the issue even
try to change our opinion. We invite publicity.
In a letter to Tho Advocnto Commissioner Boggs confirms tho state
ment 'previously mado that as State Highway Commissioner he had ad
vised Montgomery County to tako advantage of the New Road Law and
make a loan to tho State to hasten construction of those roads.
