County, communities to receive road funding

Changes in the way Indiana distributes tax revenue will give local governments an estimated $8.1 million in highway money over the next two fiscal years.

The amount is about $2 million more than the seven municipal street departments and the Boone County Highway Department would have received based on multiplying the $3.025 million those agencies received in fiscal 2012. Based on state revenue projects, Boone County will receive about $5.78 million over two years, according to a chart provided by the Indiana Senate Majority Communications Office.

Indiana distributes tax money, broadly, into two highway accounts: the Motor Vehicle Highway Fund, which includes gasoline tax revenue; and the Local Road and Street Fund, which is based only on a county’s car registrations compared to the total cars registered in the state.

There are additional factors determining how much counties and municipalities receive.
