Surplus Should Go to Roads

By Beacon Staff

Cooperation between municipalities and the state could develop a workable plan where cost sharing would benefit everyone. The readers of your paper are all familiar with potholes and other hazards encountered on roads in bad shape.

Good roads are also safer roads.
