Division of funds between districts

Logan County District 3 Commissioner Monty Piearcy would lilke to inform the residents of his district of the passing of a resolution that has changed the way the funds received to maintain your roads and bridges is divided between districts.

Previously, the funds were divided according to the number of miles of roads that each district had.

On January 20, 2009, at the Board of County Commissioners meeting, a resolution was passed (two votes to one) to now divide the funds evenly, three ways. (33 1/3 to each district).

As you will see below the way the funds were divided previously worked out very fairly. However, with the new resolution passed, our dollars per mile to maintain District 3's roads has been cut drastically while the other districts will increase greatly.

We thought it was necessary to inform you, the residents of District 3, of this drastic reduction in funds. Commissioner Piearcy fought hard to keep this from happening. He was, of course, outvoted two to one by Commissioner Mark Sharpton and Commissioner Mike Pearson. They justified this by saying the funds should be divided based on the population in each district.  Our argument to this is that we maintain roads and bridges, not the population. This argument was to no avail.

Commissioner Pieacy wishes to let all residents of District 3 how much he appreciates the support he received during this time. Several of our residents came to the meeting, prior to the January 20th meeting, to voice their concerns. It is nice to have support like this from the community.

We will continue to maintain your roads to the best of our ability and hope that the reduction of funds will not affect us too dramatically.

Please, see below, as we have broken the numbers down for you from an average month.

MILES OF ROADS PER DISTRICT:

District 1--275 miles         District 2--370 miles          District 3--559 miles

We also, in District 3, have more bridges than the other two districts combined.

BRIDGES PER DISTRICT:

District 1--37 bridges        District 2--77 bridges          District 3--116 bridges

As you can see, the amount of miles and bridges is extremely disproportionate. With the funds being split evenly between districts, it is plain to see that the amount of money we have to maintain your roads and bridges has been drastically cut.

PRIOR TO JANUARY 20, 2009:

District 1 received--$91.45 per mile

District 2 received--$95.52 per mile

District 3 received--$93.15 per mile

CURRENTLY, the funds being split evenly between districts changes the dollar amount to the following:

District 1 receives--$147.26 per mile

District 2 receives--$110.80 per mile

District 3 receives--$60.94 per mile
