WHEREAS, the Road Use Tax Fund is an important source of support for construction and maintenance projects at the city, county, and state level; and

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors recognizes the vital role that our transportation system performs for Iowa and encourages the legislature to consider funding alternatives to increase revenue to the Road Use Tax Fund.
