Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick cosponsored a resolution at the May 8, 2014 session to transfer $5 million from the undesignated fund balance, which is currently at $89 million, to allow for additional road projects this year. With the extremely poor condition of roadways throughout Erie County, Legislator Hardwick and his colleagues in the Majority Caucus believe allocating the $5 million for necessary road repair is an appropriate expenditure.

 

The resolution, which required eight (8) votes for approval, received the support of only seven members during session. By Charter, fund balance transfers required two-thirds vote. The item will be sent to committee and considered at the May 22 session.

 

“Anyone who thinks county roads don’t need more work, hasn’t drive on county roads. I am disappointed that we did not get the required eight votes to get the $5 million in additional road funding, but voting to send it back to committee will allow me to continue fighting for this vital work to be done,” said Legislator Hardwick.
