SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. - For Sun Prairie city alderman Steve Stocker, the past month has been a lot to process.
"The last month has been very trying. This is my district. This is where a major accident happened and we lost a life," Stocker said.
Now, the city alderman and other Sun Prairie officials are looking at city ordinances regarding digging, taking extra precautions to make sure an explosion does not happen again.
One major change Stocker said he would like to see is that companies digging in Sun Prairie are from the state.
"We have to ask, is this company licensed in the state of Wisconsin? And if they are, we have that assurance that they're going through the proper channels," Stocker said.
For Stocker, it's about making sure his constituents feel as safe as possible.
"We wanted to review so that we can assure citizens any underground digging that happens, they're protected," said Stocker.
