THREE LAKES - Fifty people in Three Lakes approved a plan to tear down and rebuild the town office and police department in November. Tuesday, the board of supervisors came one step closer to making that renovation a reality.
"The plan commission thought it was a great design, approved some of the preliminary construction materials. The town board said, hey, this is a go. We also approved the funding tonight and now Three Lakes is moving ahead with a new own office project and police department," said Three Lakes Chairman Jeff Bruss.
The board hopes to break ground next spring. The project will cost about $1.6 million.
