The beginning of the end for the former Marquette School in Kewaunee is expected to begin at the end of the month. That is when the city of Kewaunee hopes to be able to acquire the building and distance itself from possible litigation that could occur when the demolition begins potentially in the summer. The city is currently working with an attorney and engineering firm to figure out an exact timetable and best practices for the future of the site. Kewaunee Mayor Sandi Christman says it has received positive support from the community about the project’s potential.
Christman is hopeful the city will receive grants to help alleviate some of the costs associated with the building’s removal.
