Tomorrow’s meeting of the Camden County Commission will be highlighted by a discussion of the TIGER 5 Grant. The grant, previously proposed by representatives from the Bridge Corporation, including treasurer and Lake area Chambers of Commerce ambassador Joe Roeger, seeks to fund the expansion of Highway 242 to the Westside of the Lake.
This subject was previously brought before the commission and was the subject of controversy. While the TIGER 5 Grant was listed on the agenda, no minutes or recordings of this meeting can be found detailing the nature of this discussion. In this meeting, it was alleged that candidate Kris Franken entertained discussion of the county subsidizing this expansion.
Franken denied any offers were made between the county and representatives of the private, for-profit Bridge Corporation.
