Slashed Budget Means Reserve Funds Could be Used on Highways

In January Pennington County voters rejected imposing a wheel tax.  The Rapid City Journal reports that the county highway budget is now seeking other funds.  Although Pennington County has about $11 million in highway money, this money is already allocated for future projects.  Highway Superintendent Tom Wilsey says he has used some of these funds in the past, but it was approved at the annual budget hearing.  This will be a unique time to request these funds.
