Money given out early to help local governments hit by snow storms, flooding

Frankfort, KY- Governor Ernie Fletcher announced today the early release of $33 million in County Road Aid and Municipal Road Aid funds to numerous counties and cities across Kentucky. 

“Many areas of the Commonwealth have been hit hard by the December snow storm and the January flooding”, stated Governor Ernie Fletcher.  “The inclement weather has taken its toll on many roads and stretched city and county road department funds to the limit.  The early release of these funds will allow city and county governments to start repairing roads and bridges damaged by snow, ice and high waters.”

Since November 2004, Governor Fletcher has directed an estimated $60 million to county and city governments from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Department for Intergovernmental Programs. The early release represents $28 million from the County Road Aid fund to those eligible counties in the County Aid co-op, and $5 million from the Municipal Road Aid fund to those eligible communities in the Municipal Aid co-op. The funds being released by Governor Fletcher, which is 35 percent of the total allotment, were originally scheduled to become available to eligible city and county governments in March 2005.

 “Through the leadership and vision of Governor Fletcher to provide a safe and reliable transportation system for all our citizens, today’s announcement is further proof of our commitment to improving the highway infrastructure throughout the Commonwealth,” said Maxwell Clay Bailey, Secretary, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.  “Governor Fletcher is to be commended for his decision to release these funds early to help our local governments deal with storm related damage now instead of waiting until March.”

All counties and cities in Kentucky are eligible to participate in the County Road Aid co-op and Municipal Aid co-op.  Those county and city governments that do sign an agreement with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet that stipulates the money will be used for manpower and materials to repair and improve roads and bridges maintained by county and city governments.  The participating counties and cities receive 60 percent of their allotted funds in August, 30 percent in March and 10 percent at the end of each fiscal year.  Non-participating county and city governments receive their funds monthly from the Governor’s Office for Local Development, or GOLD. 

The money for the County Road Aid co-op and Municipal Road Aid co-op funds comes from the collection of the motor fuels tax in Kentucky.  Approximately half of the motor fuels tax is mandated by law to be used specifically for improvements and maintenance of Kentucky’s city streets, county roads, and secondary state roads.
