Better trails and internet for you is the goal for a pair of grants Kewaunee County officials are looking to acquire in the coming months. During their meeting this week, the Kewaunee County Board unanimously approved the resolution allowing the Kewaunee County Promotion and Recreation Department to apply for the grants to rehabilitate its snowmobile and ATV trails at Riverview ATV Park. Approximately $94,000 in grant money is available, though some of it is through matching funds. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt explained to the board how that could be done.
Feldt alerted the board about the upcoming deadline to apply for the broadband expansion grant through the state. The county is planning on partnering with Bug Tussel Wireless on the application process after being awarded $960,000 in 2020 and $1.4 million in 2021.
