Feb. 13, 2017, Hartford, WI – On Jan. 31 there were 250 people who showed up to a public meeting at Hartford Town Hall to comment on the proposed STH 60 Reliever Route. The county is looking to implement an alternate route running north of the City of Hartford, through St. Lawrence and down County Highway K to I-41 as a way to relieve congestion on State Trunk Highway 60.
A majority of those in attendance at the meeting were a little miffed when the “public comment” format was actually one-on-one conversations with representatives from the engineering firm or county officials. Many thought the format would be similar to a “public listening session,” which is what was advertised.
Those in attendance were also instructed they could file comments electronically. http://www.washingtoncountyinsider.com will print those comments. They can be submitted to [email protected]
