MP1--Proposals to ·take Iowa's sideroads out. of the mud have.been under discussion .in/recent sessions of the legislature.' Last week, the legislature .passed and sent to the governor a farm-to-market road bill. Because of popular interest in the subject, the following summary of the,bill was prepared by the Associated Press:. . . , What is the object of the farm- io-market road hill? The bill would set up a fund under jurisdiction of the state highway commission for use in counties which decide to participate in the fund in order .to grade, bridge and gravel their secondary roads. : How would the fund he made iip?" " The bill would' provide three sources of' revenue: (!) Allotments -from the federal government (Iowa's allotment this year is $658,000);'(2)'. Four per.cent of all primary road funds of the state which, this year, would mean about $650,000; and (3) all other funds which may be appropriated for the construction of farm-to- market roads. (Increased truck .taxes, to the amount of $1,000,000 1 to $2,500,000 a year would go into the fund under another bill under Consideration in .the house). How would this money he allotted to counties? The allotment to each county would be in the ratio that the area of the county bears to the total area of the state. How would a county so about · '. establishing its farm-to-market road system? · . If the state highway commission were satisfied the county had enough resources to maintain the road, the board of supervisors would designate a system of secondary roads, not to exceed 15 per cent of the total secondary road mileage of the county, to be included in the state system. What if 15 per cent of the county's roads already are improved? The board would recommend a system including roads already improved, plus an additional 15 per cent of the secondary 'road mileage of the county. How would the county carry out a specific project? The board of supervisors would . submit an outline of the proposed t jaroject to the state highway commission. If the 'commission approved, the county engineer would prepare plans ; and specifications and an estimate of costs. If the estimated cost of the project were more'than $1,000; the'highway commission would advertise for bids, and recommend to the board the one it considered best. No contract c6uld be awarded to any state,official or member of the highway commission, to any relative of a,state official, or to a firm in which any commission member is financially interested. Would any of the county's allotment of gasoline tax money be used for farm-to-market roads? : Up to one-fourth of the county's gasoline tax' allotment might be used for this purpose upon resolution of the board of supervisors, but it would not be necessary. . How would right-of-way he obtained? The county would obtain the ,. right-of-way, which would be paid for out of the county's allotment of farm-to-market roac funds. · Who maintains (he road once i is built? The county. If the county failed to do so, the state highway commission would notify the board o supervisors. If the road were no placed in proper condition within 60 days, the commission could have the work done at the coun ty's expense, Uow long would a county's al lotmcnt from the farm-to-marke road fund remain available?
