The Local Highway Technical Assistance Council’s mission is to assist the Local Highway Jurisdictions (cities, counties and highway districts) with utilizing the available resources for maintenance and construction of Idaho’s Local Highway System in the most efficient and effective manner possible.
To accomplish this mission, the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council will develop uniform standards and procedures for highway maintenance, construction, operation and administration; make recommendations to the Idaho Transportation Board for the distribution and prioritization of federal funds for local highway projects; and assist the Legislature by providing research and data relating to transportation matters affecting Local Highway Jurisdictions within the state.
The Local Highway Technical Assistance Council will also represent its member jurisdictions in conferences, meetings, and hearings relating to highway and street subjects affecting Local Highway Jurisdictions; maintain and disseminate information from other states as to similar activities that would affect the Local Highway Jurisdictions in Idaho.
In addition, the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council has the ability to cooperate with and receive and expend aid and donations from the federal or state governments, and from other sources for the administration and operation of the Council, and when authorized by the participating local jurisdiction, to act for that local jurisdiction, through a joint exercise of powers agreement with any other local jurisdiction and any agency of the state of Idaho, or any agency of the federal government.
