MADISON – Yesterday, Treasurer Sarah Godlewski and the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands (BCPL) approved two new loans in Walworth county worth $5.1 million.
The Town of Delavan will be receiving $5 million to finance needed fire station construction. Their deteriorating fire station does not have the necessary space nor the modern equipment necessary to properly serve the people of Delevan and keep their community safe.
The Honey Lake Protection and Rehabilitation District will receive $100,000 in financing to repair and maintain the Honey Lake dam.
“Wisconsin’s water and public safety infrastructure is critical for our communities,” said Treasurer Godlewski. She continued, “When our infrastructure is deteriorating, it is a threat to the safety and security of our communities. Wisconsin communities can turn to the BCPL for efficient and affordable financing to update and upgrade their infrastructure. I’m committed to continuing to provide this important resource for projects like these in Walworth county.”
