Committee To Review Bridge Detour Traffic Control Agreement

 

A Sturgeon Bay committee Thursday will take a closer look at the agreement between the city and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation which allocates about $78,000 in state funds for the Sturgeon Bay Police Department to provide traffic control during the Bayview Bridge detour.

7th District Alderman Bob Schlicht says Common Council members found out about the arrangement after the deal was struck. Schlicht says aldermen didn't necessarily need to be involved in discussing or negotiating the agreement, but he says they should have been kept in the loop. 

That's why Schlicht asked for the item to be placed on the agenda for Thursday evening's Community Protection & Services Committee meeting.

City Administrator Steve McNeil says the funding came up relatively recently, in the past month or so. He says he doesn't believe it was placed on a Council agenda but says that wouldn't be atypical for this type of grant.

"We get grants from the state for lots of things, (like) seat belt checks," says McNeil. "These kinds of funding programs come up all the time. But the important thing was the state was willing to step up and give us 80 thousand dollars to manage the traffic during the bridge delays which I think is great."

Police Chief Arleigh Porter is expected to provide more details about the grant at Thursday's meeting at City Hall. It begins at 6 p.m. or immediately following the Cable Communication System Advisory Council meeting which starts at 5 p.m.
