The city of Kewaunee is still waiting to see what is in store for the site of the former Marquette School. The phase one environmental analysis of the site is in its final stages as the city learns more about the extent of contamination on the property before it presumes ownership. Following their lawyer’s advice, Kewaunee Mayor Sandi Christman says the city will learn even more about the issues the site might have when the phase two environmental analysis takes place.
Christman says the city is putting the final touches on a grant request for up to $150,000 that is earmarked for blighted property and areas of contamination. The final environmental analysis report is expected by the end of the year.
