Pothole repair funds included in budget

The 2014-15 state budget includes nearly $3 million in local highway funding to help pay for pothole repair, according to information from Assemblyman Marc Butler.

Fulton County will receive $276,397 in pothole repair funds; Hamilton County will receive $108,798.

“It’s important for our communities to be able to maintain roads and local highways to keep them safe for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians,” Butler said in the submitted item. “Well-maintained roads and infrastructure are important not only for safety, but also for economic and community development.”
