Re: State Street Aid
Dear Mr. Hawkins
You inquired about using Sate Street Aid funds for the relocation of water and sewer utilities that are involved in street work.
While State Street Aid legislation does not specifically address the use of funds to relocate water and sewer utilities, common law requires that water and sewer utilities bear the expense for the relocation of these utilities from a street right-of-way. MTAS is of the opinion that State Street Aid funds cannot be used for relocating water and sewer utilities from the right-of-way.
State Street Aid funds can be used to pay for other expenses associated with the street work. Please call me if you have questions or comments.
