Hot mix

The Andalusia City County on Tuesday got a closer look at new equipment recently acquired by the Public Works Department.  Public Works Director Glynn Ralls explained that the new machine allows his department to repair pot holes and other damage to streets with hot mix rather than cold mix asphalt. The machine will hold 4 tons of asphalt, and has a timer so that it can be plugged in and timed to be “hot” when crews arrive at work. The equipment is a joint purchase of the city and the Utilities Board.
