Amid ongoing groundwater concerns, budget issues in 2016, and the pending closure of Algoma Hardwoods this year, Kewaunee County administrator Scott Feldt looks to Kewaunee as a positive sign in 2017. Work on the $4.2 million Kewaunee Harbor revitalization project began earlier this year with repairs being made to its crumbling seawall. Feldt says it could have a lasting impact on the city.
In 2017, Feldt says groundwater and economic development will remain the biggest issues for the county. However, Feldt says the biggest story in the area will take place in July when Kewaunee County’s population is expected to grow by 200 percent for Farm Technology Days being held at Ebert Enterprises in Algoma.
