Like many other smaller municipalities in the state, the Town of Forestville is trying to do more with less when it comes to maintaining its roadways. Town Chair Roy Englebert says that Forestville will have to borrow some money in order to get a good chunk of road repairs completed this year.
Englebert says the Town of Forestville is waiting for Door County to finish up North Carnot Road next week before doing some roadwork in the township. He says the roads in the last eight years have required up to more than an inch of additional asphalt to hold up due to heavier farm equipment. Forestville should be doing about three miles of resurfacing a year, but can only afford about half of that with the current tight budget, according to Englebert.
