Rockdale County officials are working on another round of improvements for the historic Milstead community. Officials from the county’s Road and Drainage Department presented a proposal today during the Board of Commissioners’ work session seeking $75,000 in matching funds for a $500,000 federal grant to install a new drainage system in the community.
Board Chairman Richard Oden said today that a new drainage system is sorely needed in the community.
“This project is really going to enhance this community in a huge way because now they will no longer have to deal with flooding and the low water pressure in this community,” Oden said.
