Campbell County Commissioner Rusty Orick explains just how much a difference the completed paving project will make to park and lake goers.

LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The gravel portion of the Lonas Young Park, the White Bridge Park, parking and ramp areas was paved on Thursday thanks to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA).

Brian Hatfield, often called the Mayor of White Oak, runs the roller on Thursday afternoon for the Rogers Group.

Campbell County Commissioner Rusty Orick sent a resolution to the TWRA, and with the support of the County Commission, was able to garner funds, $111,405.85, from the TWRA for this project. “It’s been about three years in the making, and this revenue came from license purchases,” said Orick.

Thursday’s paving was a very big project.

“This is just in time for this weekend’s fishing tournament and the big fishing tournament next weekend,” Orick added.

  1. How can we request making a new public access for the south demory area? even something small for kayaks, canoes, and jon boats would be nice for the communities down here.

    1. Thank you for your response, Joe.

      Calling one of your county commissioners might be a good first step.
