3 Highway Workers Lose Jobs So Town Can Pay For Road Repairs
Three Fowler town highway workers have lost their jobs so the town can afford to repair roads.
"We feel really bad about laying off these workers. They're great workers...It's going to be a transition period for the whole department to work together to figure out a game plan of how to fix the roads," said town Councilwoman Natalie Spilman.
Spilman says the board will reevaluate the highway department's financial position later on and isn't ruling out being able to restore some of the positions in the future.
