Goodman advised that this was an ideal opportunity.

“These restoration claims go all the way up to Washington,” said Goodman. “We’re talking billions, not millions, of dollars in funding.”

County Engineer Cliff Knauer add that the studies would help them in future grant pursuits as well.

Board agreed to review the resolution and put it on the consent agenda for the next meeting.

Knauer also explained that the County Improvement Grant Program had strict guidelines for potential paving funding such as demonstrating they are taking traffic off of a state road, the paving of the road would encourage economic growth, maintain or protect the environment, a dangerous intersection, etc.

He advised that the board members think of any roads that match the descriptions provided and that they should bring recommendations to the next Board meeting.

Knauer added that surveys were going out to all the residents along South and North Ride Roads and if 50 percent or more were below poverty then the project would be approved for a Community Development Block Grant.
