Lee County--Some North Lee County residents say the Commission is giving them the run around on paving their road.

People who live on Gray Moss Road say they've been petitioning the Board of Commissioners for more than eight years to pave the road. There are 18 homes and a church along Gray Moss. Church-goers and homeowners who use the road say they won't stop trying to get it paved.

Arthur Wright, who pastors a church on the road, says, "We are hoping it will get paved. But it looks like they are pushing us down the line, but we hope it will get paved."

Gray Moss is on a list of roads to be paved with money from the next Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. Collections will not begin until the end of the year, and Gray Moss is not listed as a priority. County Administrator Langford Holbrook says, if all the SPLOST money is collected, Gray Moss Road should be paved within the next five years.
