Some long needed repair work on roads throughout Door and Kewaunee Counties could become a reality under Governor Evers' proposed transportation budget. The governor is proposing a $66-million increase in General Transportation Aids which pay for local and county road projects. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej says it's not known how much additional funding the county would receive. He adds any increase would help with projects that have been on hold.
Governor Evers is also proposing an eight-cent a gallon fuel tax increase for transportation repairs, which could be offset by the elimination of a portion of Wisconsin minimum mark up on fuel.
