After a busy summer that included Wisconsin Farm Technology Days in Algoma and the 100th Kewaunee County Fair in Luxemburg, government officials are now playing the waiting game on a number of different projects that could bring jobs and revenue to the area. Kewaunee County has been mentioned as a landing spot for state biogas plant and a prison slated to replace the Green Bay Correctional Institution, but both projects have been short on details in recent months. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says they are also keeping a close eye on the future of the former Algoma Hardwoods building.
In addition to the summer’s two major events, Weidner applauded the county’s coordinated tourism effort for growth in other areas, including its charter fishing.
