08/18/2016 – 1230 AM WCLO – When it comes to state transportation funding, some Janesville City Council members are saying “Just Fix It.”
The “Just Fix It” resolution proposed by Council President Sam Liebert and Councilmember Dave Marklein has already been passed by 180 counties, villages and cities.
Public Works Director Paul Woodard says the resolution stems from a Transportation Development Association campaign.
Woodard says the resolution will urge state officials to address shortfalls.
Woodard says state funding has failed to keep up with needed local road maintenance, especially since the city increase the miles of road it repairs each year from six to twelve.
The resolution goes before city council on Monday.
