County holds off on swamp sale

Kewaunee County officials will go to the negotiating table with a conservancy group before it sells land near its border with Door County. The Glacial Lakes Conservancy offered to purchase several parcels of the Black Ash Swamp, which is one of the few large, diverse lowland forests in the region. The Town of Lincoln signed off on it, but the county has pumped the brakes on the deal. Kewaunee County Chairperson Bob Weidner says it comes down to dollars and cents, which it would lose from the tax rolls if it had gone ahead with the sale.

Weidner hopes a deal to arrange payment instead of taxes will be reached with the conservancy group by the end of the month.
