Yesterday, the Marinette County Board took action, at their monthly meeting, to allow the Board of Regents to amend the lease to remove the UW Field House and the Field House property from the 75-year lease the County has with the Board of Regents. Marinette County Administrator John Lefebvre says, “if that occurs, the county would not only have full ownership but full control of what happens out at the Field House and the Field House property.”

Lefebvre says, “the process with the Board of Regents could take three months.”

Community Members, if there is something that you have in mind, that you’d like done with the Field House, contact your County Board Supervisor as soon as possible. If you’re not sure who of your ward or supervisor visit for information.
