You will see approximately $3.2 million distributed to a number of different programs throughout the county as a part of a resolution being put in front of the Door County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
The plan is to move the money from the Capital Projects County Highway Roads Construction account to a new special projects fund. The special projects fund would address projects originally discussed last year as a part of the county using its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to support a number of different initiatives. Affordable housing ($1.2 million) and broadband internet ($1 million) take up much of the funding while invasive species control, water quality protection, transitional housing, and childcare are some of the other areas addressed in the county’s strategic initiative plan that was passed in February 2022.
The Door County Board of Supervisors will also look to approve a contract with GEI to control woody invasive species on Plum and Detroit Islands and raise the price of a marriage license to the statewide average of $100 when they meet on Tuesday at 9 a.m.
