WILKINSON COUNTY RECEIVES LMIG ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUNDS
TENNILLE, Ga. – The Georgia Department of Transportation and the State Transportation Board are helping pave the way for a local road improvement project in Wilkinson County. Georgia DOT Deputy Commissioner Todd Long and Local Grants Administrator Terry Gable recently presented a check for $100,000 to help fund the full depth reclamation of a four mile section of Wriley Road, an important connector road, in Wilkinson County.
Presented funds comes from Economic Development Funds in Georgia DOT’s Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) Program, which allows local governments to decide the types of project most beneficial to their local jurisdiction. LMIG funds can only be used on improvements for roads and bridges within county, city or state rights-of-way. Eligible projects include but are not limited to safety, economic development, sidewalk, maintenance and bridge.
Funding for LMIG is allocated each fiscal year and is between 10 and 20 percent of the funding from the state motor fuel taxes collected in the preceding fiscal year. Funds for projects are distributed to local governments by a formula based on population and local road mileage. Funds can be rolled over for three fiscal years to assist with funding more expensive projects.
