Meeting Scheduled in Marshall County to Discuss Road Funding

A representative from the Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) will be meeting with the Marshall County Council and the Marshall County Commissioners this week to discuss funding options for the highway department.

Commission President Kevin Overmyer said in a previous meeting that the state will soon cut funding for local roads and highways, and it will be left to local governments to provide funding for projects.

Overmyer added that the information given by Pat Connor from LTAP would be for information only. That information could be considered in a future public meeting for possible action.

Funding options include a Local Option Highway User Income Tax (LOHUT) and wheel tax.

The joint session meeting will be Wednesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m. ET in the commissioners’ meeting room on the second floor of the Marshall County Building in Plymouth. The public is welcome to attend.
