The Town of Liberty Grove is taking steps to make its own affordable housing project a reality. The town board will consider proposals during its Wednesday meeting to remove asbestos from the former Val-A Motel buildings located 11976 State Highway 42 in Ellison Bay. The land was purchased by the town for future development earlier this year and they received word about the asbestos during its phase two report of the property. Town chairperson John Lowry told DoorCountyDailyNews.com last month the asbestos removal is just a small piece of the puzzle.
Lowry says he expects construction on the site could begin some time next spring. The Town of Liberty Grove Board will also weigh in on a three-year contract for administrator Bud Kalms and a recommendation to use grant funds for a new tower site when it meets at the town hall on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
