Marion County officials say state law won't let them repair road

Posted: Updated:
JASPER, TN (Times Free Press) - Some Marion County residents want repairs to parts of Hargiss Cove Road and a bridge leading to an old cemetery there, but county leaders said state law forbids it.

Hargiss Cove Road is not a county-owned road, and Marion Road Superintendent Neal Webb said it would be illegal for county workers to do anything to improve a privately owned road or bridge.
