CAREs Group Talks To Village Board

By Andrea Hansen Abler

  Members of the CAREs group in Campbellsport talked to the village board during their Monday, March 12, meeting.
The group showed the board some items they have been working on to help bring businesses to the area. They have put together a binder with a listing of all the business spaces that are available in the village. They also put information about the industrial park in these binders.
"It looks nice, I like it," said David Krebs, village president.
The group has also created a subcommittee to focus on bringing business to the area. They have chosen three members who will be point people for anyone inquiring about business space in the village. The group has chosen Rick Heisler, Cary Serwe and Albert Fleischman to be the go-to people for CARE's.
"We would like one of the sub-committee members to be able to meet with them (potential businesses) right away," said Kevin Harvey, village board member and head of the CARE's group.
While talking about attracting business to the area, questions came up about the industrial park. Recently two businesses were looking at space in this industrial park. One did not choose Campbell-sport because they needed more land and wanted the area leveled off so they could start building right away. According to Krebs, the second business still has Campbell-sport on its list, but not at the top of the list.
Heisler questioned the board about the available space in the industrial park. Currently, there is a one-and-a-half acre space that is leveled off and ready to build on. The rest of the park needs to be leveled and prepared before a business could build on it.
"Are you going to get it ready," Heisler asked. "I've been involved with hundreds of acres of industrial land that has been sold. Would you want to come in and buy a parcel of property that is not ready to go? My opinion, if you want to sell that property, that property has to be shovel ready."
He feels a business would prefer a site to be ready to go because of all the unforeseen expenditures and the added time it would take to get the site ready.

   Members of the King family were excited to the "guests of honor" at the Shepherd of the Hills Parish annual Bunny Brunch on Sunday, March 11. All proceeds from the event are being donated to the family, who has been in need since Geoff was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 2016 which weakened his immune system, and in turn resulted in Geoff contracting bacterial meningitis. The money will be used to help the family with expenses. Members of the family are, from left, Geoff, Elliot, Melinda and Tandra King.
