As a way to promote public safety and welfare, the City of Algoma is opening their doors during cases of weather emergencies. City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says some individuals took advantage of utilizing City Hall as a shelter during the brutally cold weather earlier this month. He explains what residents can do when extreme arctic temperatures cause issues for residents in their home.
Wiswell notes that it is not offered 24/7 or year round, but rather during hazardous weather conditions. He says the city has been working with Kewaunee County Emergency Management and the health department as well.
