Under existing law, the county commission of a county has general superintendence of the roads within the county. A municipality may take over a county road within the municipality by a resolution of the municipal governing body. The resolution does not take effect unless it designates the sums to be paid by the county for being relieved of the burden of the road, and the county takes appropriate action to pay or contract to pay those sums
This bill would provide that a municipality's resolution to take over a county road would not be effective unless the county commission approves the transfer of the road to the municipality by a majority vote
Relating to county roads; to amend Section 11-49-81, Code of Alabama 1975, relating to the authority of a municipality to assume control over a county road in the municipality; to require approval of the transfer by the county commission.
