Litchfield Park Mayor Thomas Schoaf has pledged to make better use of Highway User Revenue Funds for local road projects.
Arizona raises HURF monies through fuel taxes and other vehicle operations fees and then distributes a portion to cities and towns for road projects. Litchfield Park had previously allowed HURF monies to accumulate and used general revenue funds for the projects.
On average, Litchfield Park spends $300K-$600K on road projects every year and receives approximately $440K in HURF funds.
Schoaf explained there had always been enough money in the general fund to cover road projects but that it is better to use revenue sources for their intended uses. Litchfield Park currently has a balance of $1.1M in HURF money available. (Source)
