It's on U.S 421 just south of Interstate 94.

There's discussion of a a truck least one hotel and a restaurant going in


It's about a 30 million dollar project.

Doug Biege is the county attorney.

He says the first step has been taken to finance the water and sewer extension....

In addition.....there's also talk of putting a major recreation type facility

on the old waste management landfill close by.

Biege says the county council has to give its approval......for the water and

sewer extension to occur.

That could happen before the summer.
