County Board authorizes purchase of property
Last week the St. Croix County Board gave its Transportation Committee authority to buy land in the Deer Park area for a gravel pit and new shop.
The committee is authorized to spend up to $100,000. The money will come from the Highway Department Machinery Fund.
Transportation Committee Chairman Dick King said the department doesn't plan to build the new satellite shop now, but needs the land and someone else is bidding on it.
