Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej applauds Governor Tony Evers talk of boosting transportation funding. Governor Evers said Thursday his upcoming 2019 state budget will address, what he called, "crumbling roads, bridges and infrastructure. Kolodziej says such repairs need to be managed for the long term.
Governor Evers has also been critical of wheel taxes used by counties and communities to fund road and street repairs. He says they were, in his words, "imposed on local governments because the state has not done their fair share."
