Madison County commissioners reached no conclusions Oct. 29 on what road improvements they’ll address in 2013.
But they agreed to take all the money made available by the state government through the Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) Program.
Madison County will receive $543,713 in LMIG funds for 2013. But this requires a 30 percent or $163,115 contribution from Madison County, which can come in the form of “in-house” contributions, such as engineering work or road grading done by county employees.
Madison County commissioners agreed Monday to present a potential project list for 2013 to ensure that the state sends the LMIG money. But how that money will be divided and what projects will actually get done next year is a matter of further debate for the BOC.
The county’s total allotment for road improvements will be at least $706,828 next year.
County commission chairman Anthony Dove recently asked district commissioners to come up with potential road improvements through the LMIG program in their districts. The board members presented those proposals at a recent meeting and Dove offered cost estimates to the BOC Oct. 29.
