Brown County is among the area that will benefit from state’s $200-million computer programming error. The county will get $1.1 million which could be used for employee raises and infrastructure repairs.
Brown County Highway Superintendent, Claude “Smokey” Presseau says some of that money could go towards paving roads that are in disrepair.
“The money will go in our general fund, and I’ve asked the Commissioners to transfer $500,000 in the highway fund,” he says. “My plan would be to use $250,000 this year and $250,000 in 2013.”
Presseau says there are 46 miles of road that need work – that includes a number of gravel roads the county would like to pave.
