LAUREL HILL — Okaloosa County commissioners are expected to vote soon on whether to use county resources to complete work on Sunnyside Avenue, city leaders say.

In March, the council allocated $75,000 to repair and repave the road leading to Laurel Hill School from State Road 85. The city, which seeks county officials’ assistance in providing labor and equipment, would cover the cost of materials needed.

 While awaiting response, city employees and Councilman Clifton Hall have worked on a couple of Saturdays to prepare Sunnyside for repaving and the addition of new stormwater drainage pipes.

Last month, Hall requested that the council seek a different contractor to continue the work. The agenda item was removed pending the commissioners’ vote on whether to finish the road’s repairs.
