Ray City road could get improvements in July

The Berrien County Public Works Department said they are doing all they can to minimize the ruts on Shiloh Road in Ray City.

Friday, WALB spoke to a resident who lives on the road and claims she has been trying to get the department to work on the road for three years and nothing is being done.

Berrien County Road Superintendent Ben Warren said the problem may seem worse than it really is right now because of all the recent rain, but said that the road could use some more sand and gravel in some places, it's just a matter of money.

"We get with the commissioners and we try to allow, or they do, the budget money," Warren explained. "It'll be a priority. It'll certainly be on the [next] list. I've talked with the commissioners about it, so they're aware of it. We talk regular about things like this when we have a lot of complaints about a particular road."

Warren said he hopes to be able to get the money in the county's next fiscal budget, which takes effect on July 1st, 2015.
