(CENTREVILLE) – Some possible solutions to St. Joseph County's road funding issues were shared during Thursday's road summit.

The informational meeting was sponsored by the St. Joseph County Road Commission, which is charged with building and improving roads and bridges around the County. Road Commission Manager-Engineer Christopher Bolt says the County currently receives between $5 and $6 million a year, with the majority of that coming from the State and the rest through the County Road Millage.

State Representative Matt Lori was one of the speakers and told the audience he has been in favor of a road millage ever since he was St. Joseph County Sheriff. Lori says increasing revenue is what needs to be done to help road funding and it's a topic he continues to keep working on, but there is some concern among law makers. ...... {LISTEN}.

Lori says the Michigan House has passed legislation that would put a floor and a ceiling on the gas tax and also on diesel fuel. ...... {LISTEN}.

Lori did suggest that the Road Commission along with the Cities and Townships in the County work together to leverage their money to possibly get more state and federal funds to do some of the work that is needed.
