PARKS AND HIGHWAY TO STAY SEPARATE

A proposal to merge the Grant County

Parks Commission with the Grant County

Highway Committee has failed.

The issue was listed on Tuesday’s agenda

for the Grant County Board of Supervisors.

County Highway Commissioner Dave Lambert

told the county board he’s not in favor

of the proposed merger. Because no one spoke

in favor of the merger, the issue wasn’t considered

for a vote by the board.

—-dash—-

The county board did approve a resolution,

supporting a planning grant application for

Platteville Green Energy. The county is acting

as a pass-through agency. Platteville Green

Energy is applying for a $50,000 grant from

the Wisconsin Economic Development

Corporation for a Biodigester project.

There is no financial obligation for the

county.
