So, who pays?

As a matter of interest, if a developer builds a development and the road is never turned over to the county or the community, why isn't the developer responsible for repairs? If it is a private road, why is the county even involved? If the county fixes the road (at county taxpayer expense), will the county try to recoup the cost from either the developer or the homeowners? In short, what are the rules here? Clearly it is a real hazard and needs fixing...but in the end who should pay and who will pay? Should county taxpayers be paying to fix a private developer's problem? Is the developer bankrupt, is that it?
