Village of Lake Hallie turns 10 years old

(WEAU) - It was a decade ago today that the Town of Lake Hallie became the Village of Lake Hallie.

The incorporation of the Village of Lake Hallie was approved by the state on February 28th, 2003. Village President John Neihart says the process began in 2001 because the town was slowly being annexed by Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire.

He says the village is still going strong ten years later, with the number of people wanting to live in Lake Hallie on the rise. "The village now remains the same. The borders are secure. Population has increased by about 1,500 in the ten years," Neihart told us.

He says the future is bright for the village, with a hotel planning to move in and two or three other commercial ventures have shown interest in calling Lake Hallie Home.
