Calumet shows new highway shop

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Calumet County Highway Building was held Saturday morning. Taking part were (front, from left) Highway Commissioner Brian Glaeser, county supervisors Matthew Budde, Kenneth Draheim, Alice Connors, James Stecker, and Patrick Laughrin; and (back) Miron Construction Superintendent Dick Halter, County Administrator Todd Romenesko, Highway Committee Chair Joseph Mueller, and county supervisors Robert Stanke and Hope Karth.

Highway Commissioner Brian Glaeser spoke briefly just prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Calumet County Highway Department Building, recognizing those who had a hand in making the project happen.

At 48,416 square feet, the $8.1 million facility, which came in under budget, is more than 21,000 square feet larger than the previous building which was torn down on the same site one year ago.
