The city of Algoma would bear the cost of a second pedestrian walk on the County S bridge over the Ahnapee River under an agreement that goes before the Kewaunee County Board on Tuesday.

The city had offered $8,000, or 25 percent of the $32,000 local-share cost of the second sidewalk, but the county Highway and Landfill Committee rejected that idea 3-2 in October.

The two sides worked out an intergovernmental agreement under which the city will pay $5,334 a year for six years to pay the cost of adding the sidewalk to the bridge when the county replaces it in 2019. The committee OK’d that plan by a unanimous vote Nov. 17.

The County Board considers a resolution approving the agreement during its regular December meeting, which is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the County Board Room at the county Administration Building, 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee.
