Highway commissioner hopes Evers improves local transit fundingDoor County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej hopes Governor-elect Tony Evers will make some changes in funding for local road repairs and maintenance. Evers has been touring the state to get ideas from citizens and local leaders on what their priorities are for the state budget. Kolodziej says county and local highway funding needs to be near the top of the list.
Kolodziej believes one possible solution would be to swap federal highway funds designated for local projects with some state funds.
Kolodziej also says the state shouldn't rule out the possibility of increasing the state fuel tax, which has not been raised in over a decade.
