Algoma, Kewaunee get $1.3M for blight removal

Residents in the cities of Kewaunee and Algoma will see less unsightly properties over the next two years thanks to a resolution approved by the Kewaunee County Board Tuesday.  The board approved closing out its revolving loan fund amount of about $1.3 million and allocated approximately $610,000 to Algoma and $750,000 to Kewaunee. The money will be used to buy blighted properties in hopes they can be improved. Kewaunee County Board Chairperson Robert Weidner says it was "use it or lose it" and believes the funds will go a long way in the two communities.

The money comes to the cities as grants from the state. The money needs to be used over the next two years and any funds spent over those amounts become the responsibility of each respective city.
