"The remaining €6 million will be distributed among other towns and villages throughout Slovakia depending on the length of the road stretches they are responsible for," said Finance Minister Peter Kažimír, as quoted by the TASR newswire. He added that the money would be released within a few days. The cabinet in mid-March decided to allocate a total of €16 million for fixing potholes, but later decided that half of the sum would be distributed by regional authorities.
