8820.1400 MAINTENANCE, CONSTRUCTION, TOWN BRIDGE, AND TOWN ROAD ACCOUNTS; STATE-AID PAYMENTS.

Subpart 1.

County maintenance apportionments.

As soon as the annual county and urban municipal state-aid allotments have been determined, the commissioner shall apportion and set aside the following amounts:

A.

40 percent of the regular county state-aid allotment for the general maintenance of county state-aid highways;

B.

40 percent of the county-municipal account allotment for maintaining the county state-aid highways within municipalities of less than 5,000 population.

Subp. 2.

Revisions of county maintenance apportionments.

The commissioner may, upon recommendation of the screening board or upon receipt of a resolution from a county board and for good cause shown, increase or decrease the proportion to be used for maintenance under either subpart 1, item A or B.

Subp. 3.

Urban maintenance apportionment account.

Twenty-five percent of the total allocation, if requested by the urban municipality before December 16 preceding the annual allocation, or $1,500 per mile of improved municipal state-aid streets, is the minimum allotment for the general maintenance of the approved state-aid system. The commissioner may modify any allotments to the urban maintenance account to finance the amount needed to pay the interest due on municipal state-aid bonds and to accommodate the screening board resolutions pertaining to trunk highway turnback maintenance allowances.

Those municipalities desiring to receive an amount greater than the established minimum, not to exceed 35 percent of the total allocation, shall file a request with the commissioner before December 16 preceding the annual allocation and shall agree to file a detailed annual maintenance expenditure report at the end of the year.
