MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall County’s slice of the state oil and gas severance tax is growing.

County Administrator Betsy Frohnapfel tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register (https://bit.ly/1cQb8ZL ) that the county’s severance tax revenue increased from $71,161 in fiscal 2011 to $429,810 in fiscal 2013.

Marshall County Chamber of Commerce executive director Dave Knuth says the county should use the revenue to help the state repair roads damaged by oil and gas industry truck traffic and a harsh winter.

Frohnapfel and County Commissioner Brian Schambach say the state is responsible for maintaining roads.

Shambach says he’s willing to serve as a liaison between the companies and residents concerned about the matter.
