Gary Poole, Hancock County Highway Engineer told Kiwanis about the operations and funding of Hancock Highways.  Poole, a Professional Engineer and graduate of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology said he was always concerned about salt, asphalt, and signage.   Hancock County has 686 miles of road with only 20 miles being gravel.  

Poole discussed the gas tax,car excise, highway funding, road ratings, and traffic.  The audience expressed their appreciation for the snow removal efforts last year and the departments effort to improve county roads
