The City of Kewaunee will invest thousands of dollars in the name of tourism this year after voting to open the marina in 2020. The city will take preventative measures to reduce the flooding in the marina’s parking lot while also repairing and rewiring the damaged docks. The projects will be paid for by user fees that have been collected at the Kewaunee Marina. Local business owners like Tom Kleiman appreciate the risk the city is taking to ensure anglers can come to Kewaunee to fish in its waters and visit their city.
Kewaunee’s boat launch will likely not open due to its constant water issues and the lack of money to effectively and efficiently solve the problems plaguing it.
