Tired of people driving down roads closed for construction, county engineer Brice Goebel asked county commissioners Monday to raise fines for driving around a “road closed” sign to $500.
He also suggested that $100 of the fine be given to whichever law enforcement officer wrote the ticket.
“Hired guns,” Goebel said.
County counsel Brad Jantz told Goebel officers shouldn’t be given rewards for tickets.
“Why not just take all the Road and Bridge guys after hours and have them sit there and monitor it,” Jantz said.
“More hired guns,” Goebel said. “I like it.”
