Does the board need to pass a resolution to authorize the highway department to spend the additional money of PAVE NY program?
Yes, the board needs to amend the amount of money available for the highway department as the board has the fiduciary responsibility. The resolution will need to amend the appropriate line items in the budget. For Towns, the board and the Highway Superintendent should also amend the 284 agreement to account for the changes.
