Driveway Mess Cleared Up Just In Time

A follow-up to a story first reported by the East Texas News.

The help Cindy Bridges received in correcting a muddy mess at her driveway entrance came just in time. A neighbor found Bridges in a diabetic coma Wednesday morning. Ambulance drivers were able to drive right up to her house and now Bridges is resting comfortably.

The day before crews fixed the entrance that was blocked after the Melrose Water Department did some repairs back in November. After our call the problem was taken care of.

The private roads in her neighborhood do not have adequate drainage. The county has offered to take over the roads, but many of the low income residents living there are not willing to pay for culverts that would bring the roads up to county specifications.
