The mild winter hasn’t been the best for outdoor enthusiasts, but construction projects like it. Sister Bay Administrator Beau Bernhoft says several big jobs, including the Dorr Hotel, are running ahead of schedule.
The Village of Ephraim recently had a road construction project come in well below what was set aside because they were able to use local contractors for the work. Administrator Brent Bristol explained at the time that many jobs are subjected to the “Door County premium” because of the extra expense involved with using firms that travel from Green Bay or the Fox Valley. Good weather that helps get the job done on time is a significant benefit for all involved.
