A little more than two months after a motorcyclist died on County Hwy. MM, the City of Fitchburg and Dane County are partnering to improve safety at two intersections along the road.

Fitchburg police are looking for car theft suspects, one of whom rammed a department squad car with his vehicle around 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, while the officer was attempting to make contact with the occupants.

At the nexus of Fitchburg, Madison and Monona is Capital Springs State Recreation Area, operated and managed by Dane County Parks and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Friends of Capital Springs Recreation Area.

Several programs in the proposed Dane County budget that County Executive Joe Parisi unveiled Oct. 1 could affect Fitchburg area residents.
