Kewaunee County took action last week during their monthly board meeting to facilitate the City of Kewaunee in acquiring the vacant Marquette School on Dorelle Street. Board Chair Bob Weidner describes what the board did to allow the city to move forward in demolishing the building.
The action by the board now paves the way for Dakota Intertek Corporation, who was awarded the contract for removal last month by the City of Kewaunee, to complete the demolition of the Marquette School within four months. The $1.1 million project will be offset by $600,000 from state and federal grants.
