TOWN OF SHELBY, Wis. - Town of Shelby supervisors are looking at possible cuts to services after their referendum failed on Tuesday.
They say the budget is already cut to the bone and without the referendum money, more cuts may be on the way.
One pressing concern is roads, many of which were built in the 50's and 60's and are seeing more traffic than they used to.17340972
The board will have to decide which roads will be repaired and which will have to be replaced. "With the cost of asphalt right now, you are looking at about $175,000 a mile, Shelby has 42 miles roughly of road that we maintain and take care of," said Supervisor Tim Ehler.
The town is holding its next budget hearing on Monday.
