Thursday, February 14, 2013

McCOOK, Nebraska -- The City of McCook will coordinate a public hearing to outline its one- and six-year proposed plan for new construction of local roads and streets, Monday evening.

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. in City Council chambers at the McCook Municipal Facility.

According to a press release from the city, highway user taxes are collected by the State of Nebraska and are allocated to the various street and road building subdivisions via a prescribed formula. In order to receive the funding the various subdivisions are required to submit a six-year plan of proposed new construction and compute the cost of machinery and equipment operation.

To receive their full allocation the city must also provide funding from local sources equal to half of the state provided funds.
