The Town of Washington is looking to make sure you have smoother roads to drive on in the future. The town board approved $200,000 as a part of its overall borrowing package to address its roads which have not been worked on in seven years. Part of the reason is that it is cost-prohibitive for the town to get the equipment necessary to do the work. Town chairperson Hans Lux says they have to go by the county’s schedule to get it done.
Grant dollars could help lower the out-of-pocket expense for the town when the time comes that they are able to get their roads redone.
