West Bend to Stay Course on Road Spending


Daily News

After months of meetings, a public hearing and a survey, a West Bend committee is ready to tell the city to continue down the same road it has been going when it comes to street repairs.

“We will be recommending to the Common Council that there be no significant changes to the funding of street maintenance over and above the yearly increases that have already been planned,” Alderman Rich Kasten, chairman of the Long Range Transportation Committee said after what could be its last meeting Tuesday night, as the only item on the agenda was to review a draft of the recommendations.


When the rubber meets the road — how to pay for road repairs — the No. 1 response by the survey-takers was to “continue with the current plan,” followed by holding a referendum to increase taxes and, lastly, establish a wheel tax to support road improvements.
