Fire department needs: The fire department is in need of a new fire truck. The new truck has payments of $30,703 that the local government is trying to pay for. They are also in need of small supplies and don't know how to get them.
The issue I am covering: Road repairs are a really big issue for Pittsfield, Wi. Recently Pittco Rd. Was repaired because of the building damages being done by snow plows, garbage trucks, vehicles, etc. The town of Pittsfield accepted a bid of $165,518.30 strictly for road repairs. They plan to fix S St. Augustine St. we're repairs need to be made. Pittsfield also wants to team up with the village of Howard to repair their local roads that are becoming driving hazards.
My opinion: I feel that the local government should repair all roads that need to be repaired with the budget that they have. Roads should be made as safe as possible and with pot holes and cracks, bumps and divots, this is not being insured. There are also teenagers in the area that are just ,earning how to drive. We need to make sure our roads are made safe to protect the people of of neighborhoods.
