County Funding of Roads

Reviewed Date: 06/21/2021
MTAS was asked three questions: (1) Whether a county highway department is restricted in spending its gas tax revenues to only outside municipalities; (2) Whether a county can legally earmark a portion of county property taxes collected within a municipality to roads outside the municipality; and (3) Whether a county is required to have a public hearing before final passage of the budget.
