A campaign led by Tony Evers' pick to lead the Wisconsin Department of Transportation decries the state's road-funding system, and has spread to a third of all municipalities in Wisconsin.
Officials in small Wisconsin towns say construction costs and budget cuts from the state government have caused them to convert their blacktop roads to gravel.
When town officials saw that a state budget proposal would give their counterparts in cities, villages and counties more money for roads, they felt like road kill.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has upheld a rule that puts a maximum limit on restrictions local governments can place on wind power projects.
A bill to eliminate the limit towns can spend on roadwork would likely put municipalities on equal footing with other local governments and help towns deal more quickly with unforeseen road repairs.
A case pending before the state Supreme Court will determine whether the Wisconsin Public Service Commission has to go back to the drawing board on a 2012 wind siting rule.
Lawmakers’ approval of an additional $27.37 million to help counties cover increased maintenance costs associated with the recent winter has left city, town and village representatives wondering where the help is for them.
A $5 million-a-year cost estimate tied to a bridge-repair bill has not discouraged a state senator who expressed optimism Wednesday that the money can be found.
When Ohio officials raised the tolls collected on the state’s turnpike by 82 percent over six years, Wisconsin’s long-haul truckers found alternative routes.
Critics of a bill concerning development near waterways say they are grateful for an amendment that would keep some of the prohibitions of shore land zoning rules in place.
A bill before state lawmakers would let mine operators send a letter to undo agreements used to pay for road damage.
Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday announced the state will receive $14,226,424 for town road and municipal street improvement projects, according to a Wisconsin Department of Transportation news release.
