The city of Kewaunee is looking to its community for ideas of how to pay for the demolition of the former Marquette School. Federal dollars from the United States Environmental Protection Agency and a Community Development Block Grant are helping pay for a portion of the estimated $1.2 million demolition project. Mayor Sandi Christman says the city is looking at ways to make up the $100,000 to $200,000 it is currently short of for the demolition.
Christman hopes the site becomes developed after the demolition to bring in tax revenue for the city. The city of Kewaunee will host its second public comment session on the topic on Monday at 6 p.m. inside the city hall building.
