The Washington County Board of Supervisors will lay out how they plan on spending some federal stimulus money at this weeks meeting. They’ll be discussing, and possibly approving an agreement for the Federal Highway Stimulus Program Project. This comes as welcome news during a time when many agree local roads are in need of help. Recently the Washington County Iowa Farm Bureau held a workshop meeting with County Supervisors and the County Engineer to discuss possible solutions to the deteriorating secondary road problem. County Engineer David Patterson says these roads are most vulnerable this time of year as the ground starts to thaw. Patterson says this is why they’re putting an embargo on certain unpaved routes. The board of supervisors will meet this Tuesday morning at 9:30 at the Washington County Courthouse.
