Counties, cities and villages are getting $60.9 million dollars from the state to help replenish their road maintenance budgets that were largely used up during the winter.
The money is part of $100 million dollars for special road maintenance that was provided in a supplemental budget bill that Gov. Rick Snyder signed on March 14th.
The remaining $39.1 million goes to the Michigan Department of Transportation.
Cities, counties and villages will receive varying amounts of money depending on their needs.
The money cannot be used on anything other than winter maintenance costs; money cannot go for administration, overhead or other indirect costs.
