General Assembly Awards $238,000 to County for Pothole Repair

April 9th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland General Assembly earlier this month  approved the distribution of $10 million to repair potholes throughout the state, with $238,000 to come to Allegany County according to Commissioners President Mike Mckay.  The Commissioners say that while any additional dollars for much needed road repair is appreciated- the allocation pales considerably to the $4 million plus the county used to receive.  Starting with fiscal year 2008, the governor has been taking federal highway user revenues that had been going to local Maryland governments, and using these funds generated by fuel taxes to help balance the state’s budget.  Mckay said the money won’t go along way in Allegany County.
