Town of Clayton Gets $41K for Street Repairs

Posted: Updated:

CLAYTON, Del.- The Town of Clayton is set to receive funds to help street improvements.

The rough winter left behind a lot of potholes across Delmarva and the town of Clayton certainly got its share. Nadine Gozdziewicz recently moved to Clayton from California. One of the biggest differences she noticed were the roads.

"I mean everywhere I go here in this area it's really bad,” said Gozdziewicz.

She says it’s because of the potholes that her car has suffered.

"The suspension in my car is completely shot based on the roads,” said Gozdziewicz. “I mean it's bumpy everywhere."

Gozdziewicz was not the only driver in Clayton affected by the bad roads.

"Inside, outside, around, I mean everywhere the roads are in unbelievable shape sometimes," said Clayton resident, Dawn Gland.

"Everybody needs the roads to be no pot holes and stuff like that," said Debra Bauers of Clayton.

Fortunately for drivers in Clayton, that will soon change. The town announced at their town council meeting Monday evening that they will receive $41,000 thanks to the Municipal Street Fund Aid.

"We use these funds for obviously for fixing up the streets from pot holes and things from the winter time and just regular routine street maintenance," said Councilman Dave Letterman. "We could use it for purchases for vehicle parts like snow plows and that sort of thing."

Drivers in the area say they were glad to hear the news.

"I think it's totally awesome,” said Bauers. “It really needs it. It's a very small town, a very old town."

"For streets for anything it's a good idea,” said Gland. “I mean it's a small town. It seems to be neglected sometimes and anything that could be done to improve is improvement for everybody."

Town officials say they are excited about receiving the funds. But they plan to be strategic with their spending.

"We’re not going to rush into spending it,” said Councilman Letterman. “We have streets out in Huntington Mills that we need to take care of and Providence Crossing has some streets. We're going to use some of that money for that as well as the impact fee that we have."

The town hopes to get the improvements started soon.
