Towns, State Strapped for Road Repair Money

Print More

Towns around Vermont this summer have had to make emergency road repairs after damage caused by heavy rains. And a state fund that usually helps pay for that was already smaller than usual when the fiscal year began July 1.

David Dill, director of operations with the Agency of Transportation, says towns shouldn’t worry. He says the state is committed to helping the towns repair storm damage.

But it will be a big bill this year. Dill says the agency so far has committed to providing more than $1.4 million to towns. And he says that will probably require a supplemental budget request to the Legislature when lawmakers convene in January.
