A group of residents in central Coffee County say they're in desperate need of help.

In hot, dry times' area residents say Coffee County Road 513 turns into a dust cloud. In times of rain, it's a mud trail.

Several homeowners told the Coffee County Commission that they've been promised their dirt road would be paved, but still, no action.

Daniel Jackson said, "It'll be easer to get to Elba, and to drive to Enterprise to work. We’ll soon be having storms and there won't be anything left of the road."

Several homeowners said something needs to be done because it's essentially a disaster in the making.

Harold Trout said travelers, "Drive down the road at 50, 60 miles per hour. I was pulled over at one time and one driver ran right into me."

For several homeowners along Coffee County Road 513 they say it's a disaster waiting to happen.

Leo Brown said, "It's kind of a revolving door. We're not making it too complicated. But we do need the road paved on County Road 513."

County commissioners listened to the homeowners, but took no action to pave County Road 513.

During hearings for next year's budget, commissioners will try to work out funding to improve several dirt roads.
