During the City Council meeting of July 18th, Mayor John Larson asked the council to employee Cedar Corporation out of Menomonie to help with a plan on what the city is willing to participate with a developer with the old Hill School property.
Now that the old buildings have been razed, Larson quizzed the council on what they felt the city could do to encourage a developer to purchase the site and develop it. Larson noted about streets, water and sewer connections. He hoped that members of the council and Cedar reps could sit down and make a plan that could be offered to a developer.
Larson noted that a couple of developers have shown interest in the site.
