You will find construction crews near Kewaunee’s Harbor Park soon thanks to a state grant. Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers announced $9.4 million in Harbor Assistance Program (HAP) grants earlier this week. The bulk of the money went to five other projects in Milwaukee, Green Bay, LaCrosse, and Superior. The City of Kewaunee received $249,000 to replace pile cluster moorings along its dock wall near Harbor Park. Mayor Jason Jelinek says the grant dollars were critical for the city to receive.
The HAP grant was not the only one received by the city. Kewaunee also recently received a grant to allow city officials to plan what future improvements can be made to its marina. Jelinek says the city has to spend money every year to repair some of the docks that get damaged during the year.
