City by City: Remer, Chisholm, Winter
Remer, MN- Hwy 6 construction began Tuesday, July 5, and motorists can expect the road to be a single lane through town. No on-street parking will be available and businesses are accessible via local roads. Work began near 3rd Ave. with storm sewer removal and repair. The project is expected to last through September. Other improvements being made include resurfacing, improving sidewalks and updating street lighting.
Chisholm, MN- The local animal shelter needs repairs. Precious Paws Humane Society has been fundraising for a new roof, however once money was secured they were informed their contractor had backed out and new bids are much higher than anticipated. Additionally, they had the walls of their main cat room done a few years ago and have recently discovered they were done poorly and are now growing mold. An air quality assessment was done and while it is safe it is not an ideal healthy environment for pets or people.
Winter, WI- Norvado, a local company that aims to keep the Northwoods connected via TV, internet and phone services has announced a $9.8 million project to keep doing just that. The project will bring fiber broadband connectivity to businesses and residents from Winter and Clam Lake. The project is expected to be complete by 2024 and impact over 1,500 homes and businesses.
