There’s never a good time for a big repair bill, but Outagamie County officials say the ongoing renovation project at the administration building couldn’t have come under a better set of circumstances for taxpayers.
“We’ve definitely benefited from the timing,” said County Executive Tom Nelson, who added that taxpayers are getting the biggest bang for the buck. “It’s a very competitive market, we received some very competitive bids and we’re very pleased with the work so far.”
Construction crews are about two-thirds of the way through the renovation project at the building commonly referred to as Appleton’s old courthouse. It’s a solid structure — described as a “bomb shelter” by a worker on site — that hasn’t lost much, if any, of its stately appearance inside or out.
