Gibraltar Approves Bike Plan

The Town of Gibraltar “enthusiastically endorsed” a new bike route plan at last night’s town board meeting. Town Chairman Merrell Runquist said the town must now figure out who will be in charge of moving the plan forward. No funds were allocated to the project yet. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will resurface Hwy 42 from the bottom of the Fish Creek hill up to Sister Bay in 2013, and one option would be to wrap bike lanes and improvements into that project.

The town also set a date for a public hearing for additions to the Sanitary District. Affected property owners will be allowed to speak on the proposed addition of three parcels to the district at 6:30pm, March 3. The owners of the properties located near on County Hwy Fhave asked to be added to the district.
