    The Anderson County Fiscal Court voted last Tuesday to accept nearly $500,000 in state funds, the bulk of which will be used to resurface 4.9 miles of state highway 749 between Hickory Grove and Bonds Mill roads.

    Magistrates approved the state’s recommendation to spend $335,588 on that portion of the road, but rejected the recommendation to use the balance of the funds — $151,063 — to pave an additional two miles of that road.
