Pheasant exhibit bid, broadband expansion grant Kewaunee County Board meeting

Improving the pheasant exhibit at the Bruemmer Park Zoo and the internet in your home are the goals of two of the items on the Kewaunee County Board agenda on Tuesday.


The Kewaunee County Board will discuss partnering with Hilbert Communications once again applying for another broadband expansion grant. Hilbert Communications, which considers Bug Tussel Wireless as its subsidiary, has partnered in the past with the county to bring grant dollars to help support their broadband expansion efforts. Bug Tussel Wireless cut the ribbon on a new tower back in September after $1.4 million was awarded for the project a year ago.


Following that discussion, the Kewaunee County Board will award the contract for the new pheasant exhibit. The new base design for the pheasant exhibit is eight enclosures within two connected modules that include a maintenance area and an open-air space for public viewing. There is also an alternative design for twelve enclosures within three connected modules that again consists of a maintenance area and an open-air space for public viewing. 


The board will also vote on raises for the Kewaunee County Sheriff and the Clerk of Courts when they meet Tuesday at 6 p.m.
