Local Aid Meetings NJAPA Staff Meeting with Municipal Engineers, County Engineers, and County Administrators to Discuss Local Aid Program

The NJAPA, responding to the call of its members and the Commissioner of NJDOT, has met and will continue to meet with the beneficiaries of the Local Aid Program to learn where the Association can assist in ensuring that funds are spent in an efficient and timely manner. Meetings have been held with township engineers, a county manager and public works manager, and the leadership of the New Jersey Society of Municipal Engineers, and are planned with additional county and municipal engineers over the next two months.

In gathering information on the stumbling blocks to awarding local aid grants, the NJAPA hopes to serve as a conduit between the NJDOT and the grant recipients to assist in streamlining the program. All parties that we have met with have welcomed this initiative.
