Md. Municipalities Seek More Road Funds

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP)- Maryland cities and towns are pushing for more state money for road work and policing.

Maryland Municipal League members heard the recommendations of their legislative committee Friday at the group's fall meeting in Hagerstown.

Greenbelt Mayor Judith Davis is the group's president. She says the league's top priority is full restoration of shared state revenue for local road work and local law enforcement.

In recent years, the General Assembly has diverted much of the revenue from gasoline taxes and other highway user fees to balancing the state budget rather than sharing it with municipalities.

Shared police aid has been similarly reduced, leaving municipalities more reliant on property taxes to finance local services.

Another proposal would allow municipalities to post legal notices online to reduce their newspaper advertising costs.
