    Barry needs to speak loud enough and DO repair on the rest of Muskogee Rd. They have reworked the east end twice and the west end, but have not touched in between.A dirt road would be better at least they could grade it!

    Now maybe you can fix the road on Highway 99.

    Commissioner Barry is a true professional. He does hold his cards close to his chest though. The BOCC needs him. It’s like an EF Hutton commercial..when Steven Barry speaks, people listen.
