During the next fiscal year, Trigg County will receive $956,517 in County Road Aid (CRA) from the state to be used on county roads.

The Trigg County Fiscal Court unanimously passed a CRA resolution when they met Monday evening, a resolution that was read by Trigg County Attorney Randy Braboy. The money will be used to “aid the county in the maintenance, reconstruction and construction of county roads,” said Braboy. The county has not yet devised a list of roads that will be helped with the money.

Braboy read the resolution, which describes the “execution of a County Road Aid co-op program contract between the Fiscal Court and the Commonwealth of Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Rural and Municipal Aid.”

Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander and Trigg County Treasurer Lucy Oliver both said the contract is similar to one the county receives from the state every year, although the amount differs from year to year.

After a motion by Magistrate Larry Lawrence and a second by Magistrate Donnie Tyler, the vote was 5 – 0. Magistrates Richard Nelson and Jon Goodwin were absent.

Lawrence, who is on the county’s Transportation Committee, said they’re still working on replacing the Delmont Church Road Bridge.
