Waupaca County’s Special Hiway Building Committee this morning got its first detailed look at the proposed new hiway maintenance facility in the Town of Lind. The 109-thousand square foot facility would replace the current hiway shop in the city of Waupaca, which was built in 1936. That sits in a residential area, and that doesn’t sit well with County Board Chair Dick Koeppen, who fully supports the proposed new facility. The site for the new facility would be just off County Hiway “A”…. a 39 acre site that does include 13 acres of wetland. A meeting is being held Thursday with county and city officials, and area landowners, to work on getting the site annexed into the city of Waupaca. Michael Hacker with Bray and Associates went through the full scope of the project with the committee this morning, including the 27.6 million dollar price tag. The full county board will get a presentation on the proposal in two weeks. A vote on the project will be scheduled later this fall.
