ODOT releases local impact details based on proposed vehicle user fees

Story links show how it would affect Bluffton and Allen County

The Ohio Department of Transportation released searchable spreadsheets that give detailed numbers on what each Ohio county and municipality would receive based upon the proposed increase in the motor vehicle user fee called for in the department’s proposed 2020-21 budget.  

Ohio's cities, villages, counties, and townships would receive about 40 percent of the funding.

The amount municipalities receive is based on the number of motor vehicles registered in each municipality. Townships see their funds distributed based on both the number of center-line roadway miles and vehicle registrations.

State law also divides revenue equally among the state's 88 counties. The proposed increase would give each county engineer's office an additional $1.772 million.

Per a constitutional restriction, this money can only be used for purposes related to the construction, reconstruction, maintenance, and repair of public highways and bridges.
