Appleton Leaders Move to End Expo Center Project

City of Appleton_-7367612297705209375
APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) – The Appleton expo center project could come to a stand-still.

Three aldermen introduced a resolution to put a stop to the project. They say it’s a misuse of valuable staff time and tax dollars after the council voted down plans to purchase land for the center last month.

The $25 million project has been in the works for three years.

“There’s a lot of consultant money going into this, there’s a lot of staff hours going into this,” Alderman Kyle Lobner says. “So continuing to go forward with this when we may not have the support for it is a risk that we are spending money on something that won’t happen.

“We do have a process to follow and if there are people who do have questions, they have an opportunity to question, stop and answer the questions and that they can understand it before they vote yes or no on this,” Alderman Peter Steuck says.

The resolution will now be discussed at a public meeting Monday at 6 p.m.
