Ron Berry was appointed to the Roane County Commission on Sept. 14.
Sometime after that, the county highway department put a fresh coat of pavement on his section of Emerald Cove Lane near Rockwood.
A perk of office or just a coincidence? Officials contend it was the latter but have failed to provide paperwork to document their claim.
“I came home one day, and it had been paved,” Berry said.
Determining when that day was has proved complicated.
