Suamico residents submitt petition for building project referendum
SUAMICO, Wisconsin: Suamico village residents have submitted a petition, signed by approximately 1,000 area registered voters, seeking referendum on a proposed $6 million municipal building project. The village board will review and verify the petition and will address the issue in the next board meeting on July 20, 2009.
The proposed building project will house the police department and the public works department, which will be located in the central part of the village. Although residents are not in opposition to a new building, many expressed concerns due to a lack of consideration from the town board.
According to Suamico resident Ben Schenkelberg: "We want a vote for it on our terms. We're for a (Department of Public Works) building, but we want a different site. Let us decide what the building should be like."
