More money coming to county from state gas fees



Butler County and its 57 municipalities this year will get more money from the state impact fees on gas drillers than they did a year ago.
The state has announced distributions of the money, commonly referred to as Act 13 funds, for this year showing an increase to the county as well as most municipalities for the third year of the fee.
The county in July will receive $1.75 million. That’s about a $600,000 increase over last year’s disbursement, and it brings the three-year total to about $3.75 million.
The 57 municipalities will get $2.79 million this year. That’s an increase of little over $1 million from last year, and brings the three-year total to $5.89 million.
“It’s up generally across the state,” said Jennifer Cocher of the state Public Utility Commission.
The state has a 13-point list of items the money can be spent on that ranges from road and bridge infrastructure to environmental programs and emergency preparedness.
