The speed enforcement grant is a pass-through grant via the Dane County Sheriff’s Office and the City’s share is $65,000 over the period of October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020. Required matching funds of $16,150 (25%) will be met through regular deployments of the department’s traffic safety enforcement team.
In 2016, the City received a Wisconsin Department of Justice (WDOJ) ICAC Task Force grant which was extended in 2017.

The additional amount anticipated in 2020 from the extension is $7,800. There is no matching requirement with this grant.
