The impact fees cannot be used for maintenance and repair of existing capital facilities. For example, impact fees cannot be used to patch a road, but they can be used to build a new road or upgrade a road from County specifications to State specifications so it can withstand the heavy truck traffic.
There are additional capital items, such as schools, hospitals and items for each municipality which are not included in the RPI study or the impact fees, but which are very real needs. The impact fee cannot be expected to pay 100% of the cost of the impacts on County infrastructure. By law the County will have to pay for a portion of the impact through existing sources, such as property taxes, severance taxes and mineral leasing funds.
