Since the last meeting, she said that the State Highway Administration had alerted the city staff that Highway User Revenue (HUR) for the city would be cut by $89,000 for FY21. These funds are collected by the state from gas tax and motor vehicle fees. Municipalities use them for road repairs and other transportation projects. Following the last recession, the Maryland General Assembly cut the amount that would go to local governments by more than 96% in order to balance the state budget. Funds had only started to flow back into local municipalities in the past handful of years. This will be reflected in the city’s annual paving project for FY21.
