Michigan's government sends $61 million dollars to local communities --counties, cities and villages-- today to help pay for the rough winter's road plowing and pothole repairs.  

This is part of the $100 million approved in a supplemental appropriations bill agreed upon three weeks ago.

This one-time  appropriation of $100 million has MDOT receiving and the counties sharing $39.1 million each,  while cities and villages each would get $21.8 million.

Transportation officials say it a complex formula, but you could look up the amount your community and your county are getting in this list.
