Anybody know how to light a fire under somebody to get the intersections along HWY 74 thru Tyrone cleaned/swept of all the heavy aggregate thats dropped from the dump trucks that come out of the quarrys? It would have to be shoveled up though. I have tried calling the GA DOT which is no help. You would think the Tyrone police would be interested in stopping the trucks that are not completely broomed off when leaving the quarrys.

You've got to call city hall at 770-487-4038. Good luck dealing with that bunch.
