LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A village has scheduled a groundbreaking ceremony for its new municipal building.
The Village of Lake Hallie says the event will be Monday evening. The new building will be built across the street from the current public safety building. It will house the Lake Hallie Police Department and a station for the Chippewa Fire District. The current building is more than 35 years old, and has led to space problems for workers. The village has also had problems with rodents and mold there.
Years of discussion led to voters approving the construction of a $4,500,000 building in an advisory referendum in November 2012. Five years earlier, voters rejected a binding referendum to build it by a near 70 to 30 margin.
