MERRILL - WJMT/Z104 Radio in Merrill could move into its new home by next month.
The radio station has operated out of the Lincoln House for more than 20 years.
But last winter, a water pipe in the Lincoln house froze and burst. The water flooded the station.
Jim Medley is the operations manager for the station.
He says everyone there is excited about the move.
"I think the new space is going to add just that extra level of professionalism," says Medley. "It's going to look great, we're going to sound better and people are going to be really proud of their hometown radio station."
The new place is under construction right now.
With the move, the station will have more space and better equipment.
Station employees are happy be leaving the hassle of an older building behind.
The city of Merrill is in charge of demolishing the Lincoln House. They are still looking for a new contractor to finish the tear down.
The Boulder Junction Town Board voted two to one Tuesday night to move forward with a town plaza plan. The plan will now go to a design phase.
The board estimated the cost of the design phase to be between $30,000 to $50,000, but it was dropped to about $25,000 at the meeting.
Town Chairman Dennis Reuss and Town Supervisor Dennis Duke voted in favor, with Town Supervisor Denny McGann voting against the plan.
A little more than $1 million may not seem like a lot of money to a city like Madison or Milwaukee. But for a town of fewer than one thousand people, it's a lot. The Boulder Junction Town Board could vote Tuesday whether or not to move onto the next phase of a $1.26 million town plaza project.
Dennis Duke has a vision of what Boulder Junction could look like in a few years.
"This one has a much more artistic flair, this has a more engineering flair if you will," said Duke while looking at potential design plans.
