Reserve Highway Funds Will Not Be Used To Replace Wheel Tax

Since Pennington County voters rejected the wheel tax, Rapid City Journal reports three projects will need to be delayed, and regular road maintenance will suffer a cut back. Although there had previously been talk of using the highway's reserve funds, Superintendent Tom Wilsey has stated on Tuesday, January 19, that that will not be the case. 

Wilsey also stated highway safety will not be compromised because of the setbacks.
