County Tweaks Road Funding Formula

The supervisors held two votes this week over how to divvy monies for road maintenance.

They changed the recipe for distributing discretionary, non-Measure A funds from a formula based entirely on the number of road miles per supervisor’s district to one based 75 percent on miles and 25 percent on unincorporated population. That new formula includes money set aside as part of the board’s plan to funnel $102 million toward infrastructure over the next decade.

The board also decided to keep its formula for Measure A funding the same: 50-50 based on population and miles in South County, and 100 percent based on road miles in North County. The county’s $252 million transportation maintenance backlog is down $7 million from last year.
