About Secondary Roads

Secondary Roads facility.

Scott County, similar to other counties in the State of Iowa, is required to employ a licensed engineer to be in charge of the construction and maintenance of all roads under the County's jurisdiction.

The County Engineer is hired by the Board of Supervisors. All employees of the Secondary Road Department, including the engineer's staff, are hired by the County Engineer to carry out the duties of the department.

Funding for the construction and maintenance of Scott County's roads comes from several different sources. Scott County, like other counties in the State of Iowa, operates with revenue from two different funds. They are the Farm-to-Market Fund and the Local Secondary Road Fund. The largest source of money going into these two funds is the Road Use Tax.
