The Wausaukee Village Board will conduct a public hearing on Wednesday, March 18th at 5:30 pm to obtain input for the drafting and submission of a Public Facilities Grant application for funding through the Community Development Block Grant [CDBG] program administered by the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources. The grant will be to help fund the repurposing of the former Stephenson National Bank and Trust Building located at 704 Main Street in Wausaukee into a multi-purpose facility to include the Village library, community and senior center and Village offices. CDBG funds will not be used for that portion of the building to be used for Village offices. The public is invited to learn more about the CDBG program, help identify additional community development needs, and provide input on the proposed project.
