Just Fix It Campaign Brings Awareness to Rising Transportation Costs in Wisconsin
71 meetings were held simultaneously to send a message to officials in Madison that local governments want more money for transportation.
For the first time ever, communities across Wisconsin held 71 simultaneous meetings about transportation.
Organizers behind the Just Fix It campaign said they want to send a clear message to Madison that they need to address the problems when it comes to fixing and maintaining roads.
“Instead of kicking the can down the road year after year, budget after budget, it’s time to sit down and make some hard decisions and fix the transportation funding system,” said Andy Lisak, Douglas County administrator.
Douglas County officials say they have nearly 327 miles of road and are only able to maintain a fraction of them unless additional state funding comes through.
