    From the Wisconsin Counties Association, League of Wisconsin Municipalities and Wisconsin County Highway Association

    “We appreciate Governor Walker and Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Secretary Gottlieb for listening to the thousands of local government officials across Wisconsin who have stressed the importance of local roads and infrastructure.

    Local governments have been struggling to maintain local infrastructure in the face of reduced revenues and rising costs. The budget proposed by Governor Walker’s Department of Transportation provides much needed increases in local transportation aids, placing counties and municipalities in a better position to maintain roads and bridges.

    The DOT budget proposal is the first step in a budget process that will play out over the next year. Our associations are committed to working with the Governor and Legislature to find a long-term sustainable solution to our state’s infrastructure needs that guarantees Wisconsin’s entire transportation system—including local roads and bridges, mass transit systems and state highways—is maintained and where necessary, improved, well into the future.”
