City Council works on budget

The Bridgeport City Council met in special session for a Budget workshop on Thursday, July 30, 2020. After routine business, Mike Beyer spoke with the council about purchasing a much-needed digger truck to replace the truck currently owned by the city. One was found near Green Bay, Wisconsin, at a cost of approximately $135,000.00. Permission was sought and given to allow Perry Nelson to fly to the location and inspect the vehicle with the condition that he would enter into a purchase agreement with the current owner if he believed it was right for Bridgeport and drive it back.
