CHIPLEY – One Washington County road project received a helping hand from a local family-owned business. Guettler and Guettler, Inc. recently donated about $15,000 worth of  thermoplastic striping to stripe a two-mile stretch of Brickyard Road spanning east from Orange Hill Road.

County Administrator Hank Hamilton says the unsolicited donation was a pleasant surprise.

"A Washington County company had an excess of materials and saw a need,” said Hamilton. "They helped the citizens of this county by providing materials to stripe a section of road where it was badly needed. Not only has the benevolence of Guettler & Guettler saved taxpayers money; it has provided more safety for those who traverse the road."
