Baldwin assistance will help the city with paving projects coming up in the next year, following an agreement between the municipality and County Commission.

The commission approved a request Tuesday to pave city roads under the contract.

Robertsdale Mayor Charles Murphy said the agreement will allow the city to pave about four miles of road at a cost of about $300,000.

“It’s not anything extensive. It’s mostly the main thoroughfares,” he said. “The cost right now is about $80,000 a mile.”

Roads to be repaired in the program would include streets such as Fairground Road and College Avenue, he said

Murphy said Robertsdale Engineer Greg Smith met Tuesday with commissioners to discuss the proposal.
