Albany- Some Worth County church leaders say the county didn't live up to a promise to pave the way to their churches.

They say for years the county worked to pave roads to every church in the county, but commissioners stopped before roads were finished to Chapel Hill, Blue Springs, Mt. Olive, Zion Grove Sylvester, and Zion Grove Powelltown Baptist Churches. They say Gintown Road has been on the project list for five years but has never been paved.

"They're terrible, this particular church and my church every year we end up having to move our services to other churches on paved roads just to continue our services due to the conditions," said Minister Larry Jones, Chapel Hill Baptist Church.

The group consulted an attorney and say if the paving isn't resumed they may sue the county.
