LAUREL HILL — The City Council on Thursday voted unanimously to seek Okaloosa County's help in paving Sunnyside Avenue and a portion of Steel Mill Creek Road.

Councilman Larry Hendren said the Okaloosa County Commission responded favorably to his letter requesting road repair assistance.

"The county said the letter was fine with them, with the exception that they wanted us to add specific streets for the fiscal year," he said. "Then, every year after that, we simply redo the letter simply by adding different streets."

The city would cover the cost of material needed to repair the roads, whereas the county would provide equipment and labor, under Laurel Hill's proposal.

Sunnyside Avenue, from State Road 85 to 3rd Street, was the first road added to the letter.

Councilman Robby Adams proposed that a portion of Steel Mill Creek Road be added.
