its five-year improvement program
around a 1875,000 secondary road
matching fund. This figure is about !
15 per cent higher than would'
previously have been available dur-
ing a five-year period because of
additional funds through the recent
federal highway bill. .
Beingli 'matching" fund, Marion
County would contribute 20 per
