WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - Wausau's city council voted this week to allow Graphic House to purchase property in the city's industrial park.
The move would bring the growing sign manufacturer from Stettin into the city at the manufacturing site just north of Major Industries. Assistant community development director Heather Wessling says the city had to pass on the purchase for it to complete. "We don't want to see the properties have speculative uses that are inconsistent with manufacturing." Since the property is on land owned by the city, the city has the first right in any sale on the building.
Wessling says Graphic House is a growing business and plans to improve the building. "They are a growing company and they are adding jobs at this time." Wessling says that the planned improvements to the property will be adding to the city's tax roll and will provide more jobs in the city of Wausau.
A scheduled purchase date for the property has not been announced.
