Pioneer Road Reconstruction

At last night's May 26 meeting, Tim Schleeper of Vierbicher reported that a number of companies took out bidding documents for the Pioneer Road Reconstruction Project but only Rock Road submitted a bid. Schleeper felt there were too many areas in the bid that were too far off estimated costs and recommended that all bids be rejected and rebid at the beginning of 2016.

The Town Board voted unanimously to reject the bid and rebid the entire project with two phases and an additional addendum for conduit. New Glarus Town Chairman also noted that he wanted to be assured that the Town will have the flexibility with the new bids to choose portions of the project as best suited for the Town.


Town Hall Expansion/Remodel Project

At last night's May 26 meeting, Patrick McGowan presented the Board with the results bids submitted for the project. The Town Board did not take action on the bids but deferred the decision for the June 9th meeting. All the bids came in far higher than estimated.

Local Government Institute Study on Local Transportation Issues & Needs

(12/19/14) “The Local Government Institute (LGI), which includes the Wisconsin Counties Association, the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and the Wisconsin Towns Association commissioned and released a Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance report entitled Filling the Potholes: A New Look at Funding Local Transportation in Wisconsin on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. The study was intended to look at the issues impacting the funding of local transportation budgets and develop recommendations for fixing the problem.

“This report shows what we’ve already known, that manufacturing, farming, and trucking make up a larger share of jobs and wages that any other state except Indiana,” said Wisconsin Towns Association Executive Director Mike Koles. “In addition, strong roads boost our $11 billion tourism industry. For Wisconsin to grow and thrive, we can’t wait any longer to invest in our infrastructure.”
