The 1959 financial statement of Kossuth county recently compiled in booklet form gives the answer. Not too badly.

By far the largest portion of county funds goes for county road construction and maintenance each year, and this varies depending on what type of worl< is lo be done, and how many bridges, culverts and blacktop surfacing is accomplished. In 1959 the total expenditure for local secondary road construction was $284,487.05 and for rriainlenancc $283.313.53. Added to this is road clearing totaling $20,109.09.
