Financing for a proposed Waupaca County Hiway Facility was given approval by the Waupaca County Board of Supervisors this morning. On a vote of 23 to 1, the board approved general obligation bonds of 27.87 million dollars for the project. The Town of Royalton’s Pat Craig was the lone “no” vote. Craig said her constituents told her the cost was too high, pointing to the percent of the county budget that goes to pay debt service. Others, like Waupaca’s Joe McClone, said it’s time to bring the hiway department into the current century. The main facility now is over 80 years old. The new 109-thousand square foot facility is to be build on a 43 acre parcel in the Town of Lind. The city of Waupaca is in the process of annexing the property into the city for the purpose of sewer and water. Officials hope to break ground his fall, with the project completion slated for the fall of 2019.
