Annually as of July 1, each participating municipality shall establish its eligibility for an allocation.  Towns incorporated prior to January 1, 1945, must submit a certified statement which provides information on the municipality's most recent election for the purpose of electing municipal officials, ad valorem taxes, or other provisions for funding the general operating expenses of the municipality; and the mileage of its legally qualified, municipality maintained streets.  In addition, towns incorporated on or after January 1, 1945, must also include in their certified statement information on their:

(1)           ad valorem taxes;

(2)           budget ordinance; and

(3)           services provided.

In all cases, the statement must be certified by the mayor and city clerk with the mileage certified by a registered professional engineer or a registered land surveyor.  To support the mileage claimed on the certified statement, a street map, certified by a registered land surveyor or registered professional engineer, which clearly shows the claimed local city streets is required.  If there have been no changes in mileage from the previous year, only certifications by the mayor and city clerk is required.  Forms and instructions are available from the Manager of Program Development, North Carolina Division of Highways, Raleigh, 27611.
