AS 29.60.110. State Aid to Municipalities For Roads.

(a) The department shall pay to a municipality that has power to provide for road maintenance and exercises that power, an entitlement based on each mile of road, street, or highway maintained by the municipality, excluding (1) the official state highway system, (2) roads, streets, or highways not dedicated to public use, (3) roads, streets, or highways maintained under AS 19.30.111 - 19.30.251 (local service road program), and (4) alleyways, in accordance with regulations adopted by the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. A payment may not be made under this subsection for maintenance of a road that is not used by automotive equipment. If at least $41,472,000 is appropriated for all entitlements under AS 29.60.010 - 29.60.310 for a fiscal year, the entitlement for each municipality under this subsection for that year equals $3,000 per mile. Otherwise, the entitlement equals $2,500 per mile.

(b) A frozen waterway and a connection from an inhabited area to a waterway that may be safely used for public transportation by automotive equipment and is so used during a portion of a year is eligible for payment of $1,500 per mile if the waterway and connection are maintained during the period of use by a municipality or combination of municipalities. The department, after consultation with the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, shall determine which waterways and connections qualify and, where the waterways or connections lie outside the corporate limits of a municipality, which municipalities shall receive the payments under this subsection, unless the municipalities involved have agreed in writing to a particular distribution.
