Kewaunee City Council rethinks gazebo location
The Kewaunee City Council voted 5-1 Wednesday night to leave the Harbor Park gazebo at its current location.
At a March 7 meeting to approve the preliminary design plans for the new park, the council had approved moving the gazebo closer to the water to create a more amphitheater-like seating.
But City Administrator Kyle Ellefson said that the majority of the council members decided after the meeting that the gazebo best served the audience for music concerts at its current location and allowed people to park nearby in their cars and listen to the music. They called a special meeting last night to discuss and vote on whether to leave the gazebo at its current location.
John Griffith voted against keeping the gazebo in its current location. He said that he supported the engineers’ recommendations to move the gazebo closer to the harbor.
Ellefson said it would have cost about $5,000 to move the gazebo. He said that that the next step in the park and harbor redevelopment project would be to review construction bids at the city council’s regular meeting in April or May..
