WEBSTER COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
RESOLUTION
SUPPORTING INCREASING REVENUE TO ROAD USE TAX FUND
WHEREAS, the Road Use Tax Fund is an important source of support for construction and maintenance projects at the city, county and state level; and
WHEREAS, an integral part of Road Use Tax Fund is the fuel tax, which has not increased since 1989, and during that timeframe construction costs have more than doubled; and
WHEREAS, the Iowa Good Roads Association, the Iowa County Supervisor's Association, the Iowa County Engineer's Association, the Iowa League of Cities, Professional Developers of Iowa, and a consortium of additional public and private individuals and organizations, have promoted the TIME-21 program (Transportation Investment Moves the Economy in the 21st Century) to underscore the steady deterioration of the construction dollar; and
WHEREAS, TIME-21 supports the Iowa Department of Transportation's request for an additional $200 million added to the R.U.T.F. that would be committed to roadway infrastructure and would be generated by increasing transportation-related fees;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Webster County Board of Supervisors recognizes the vital role that our transportation system performs for Iowa and encourages the legislature to consider funding alternatives, including increasing the fuel tax, to increase revenue to the Road Use Tax Fund.
PASSED AND APPROVED this 12th day of February 2008.
