The Marshall County Commission approved last Wednesday plans to install a water tower on Shin Point Road, a project that will “kill two birds with one stone” by providing the area better water access and giving the road much-needed repairs.

Last April, residents of Shin Point road asked the Commission to add their road to the county maintenance list. They asked the county to repair the extensive damage to the roughly half-mile dirt road, which was is so bad residents can't get trash pick-up, mail delivery, school buses or emergency services at their homes.
