Local governments receive share of fuel tax, registration fees

Gov. Jim Doyle announced Monday that checks totaling $108.3 million for General Transportation Aids, Connecting Highway Aids, and Expressway Policing Aids have been sent to the state’s local governments.

The October payments from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation include $105,078,672 in General Transportation Aids to 1,922 local units of government; $3,015,876 million for Connecting Highway Aids to 121 municipalities; and $255,975 for Expressway Policing Aids to Milwaukee County.

This year, local governments will share an estimated $429 million from the state transportation fund to build and maintain local roads and bridges, and in Expressway Policing Aids that support the Milwaukee County Sheriff Department’s patrol of Milwaukee expressways.

General Transportation Aids help defray the costs of constructing, maintaining, and operating roads and streets under local jurisdiction. Connecting Highway Aids reimburse municipalities for maintenance and traffic control of certain state highways within municipalities.
