Luxury apartments, condos proposed for former hospital property

The Shawano Plan Commission next week will consider another proposal for development of the former Shawano Medical Center property, this one featuring a luxury apartment building and single-family condominiums.

It’s the only remaining proposal on the city’s plate after a 40-unit senior housing complex that would have occupied the north parking lot of the hospital property was shot down by the commission earlier this month amid neighborhood complaints.

That proposal, offered by Kansas City-based Northpoint Development Corp., would have erected a four-story subsidized senior housing complex with 40 apartments.

The new proposal, from Tadych Investment Partners, LLC, of Green Bay, would include a four-story 39-unit luxury apartment building and up to 25 detached single-family condominiums located along the western edge of the site adjacent to Smalley Park.

Clintonville mayor vetoes wage increase

A special meeting of the Clintonville Common Council has been called for 5:30 p.m. Thursday to deal with a veto by Mayor Lois Bressette

At a meeting Nov. 14, the council met in closed session to discuss the wages for water/wastewater manager Dave Tichinel. The council voted 5-3 to raise his wages up to $35 per hour. Tichinel is on salary and is not eligible for overtime/compensatory time.

Bressette cast a veto on that council decision. In a letter to Mary Metoxen, deputy clerk-treasurer, Bressette wrote that the council has committed to engage in a performance-based compensation study. City Administrator Sharon Eveland had been directed by the council to secure an outside consultant for a compensation study.

Shawano County joins legal fight against drug companies

Shawano is one of 28 Wisconsin counties so far that have filed lawsuits in federal court against several pharmaceutical drug-makers and physicians for their role in causing a national epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose deaths.

Cities and counties in more than two dozen states have already filed similar suits, and other Wisconsin counties, including Brown, are considering joining the effort.

“County governments and the services they provide their citizens have been strained to the breaking point by this public health crisis,” the suit alleges. “Wisconsin and Shawano County are in the midst of this crisis.”

According to statistics included in the lawsuit, there were 31 hospital encounters involving opioid poisoning in Shawano County between 2012 and 2014. In 2016, there were 151 hospital encounters related to opioids in the county.

Between 2013 and 2015, at least two people died from opiate overdoses in Shawano County.

Goodfellows kicking off holiday drive

The Clintonville Goodfellows, a local charitable group, is collecting names and accepting applications for its 67th annual holiday drive for area individuals and families in need. This year, the board of directors has decided to extend the distribution of food, toys, etc., to include both the Clintonville and Marion school districts.

The group was founded in the early 1950s by Frank Sinkewicz, a former officer at FWD Corporation, and has for years helped to make the holidays brighter for the less fortunate — thanks, in part, to the dedication of longtime volunteers and the generosity of local donors. Aside from some funding through the local United Way, the Goodfellows’ work is supported by donations from individuals, businesses and civic groups.
