(Toledo, OH) $5 million in "found money" is going into road work in Toledo.
Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson announced Wednesday the extra cash was left in the general fund after increased income tax collections, reduced workers' compensation claims and healthcare cost savings.
Half of the money will be spent on residential street repaving and sidewalks. Some will go into the city's rainy day fund.
If city council approves, a new mill-and-fill machine will be purchased to repair more neighborhood roads. The mayor also projects more revenue than expected from new hand-held speed cameras, which could further put the city in the black.
