Grothman Hopes Oshkosh Corporation Will Stay In Oshkosh

Congressman Glenn Grothman would like to see Oshkosh Corporation stay in Oshkosh. The company is currently considering a proposal to purchase 30 acres of Lakeshore Golf Course for a new headquarters site. The rest of the 107 acre course would be redeveloped. Grothman says Oshkosh Corporation is a huge anchor in the community. He notes they provide thousands of jobs and they do a lot of charitable giving. Grothman says building a new headquarters in Oshkosh would create work for construction firms. He also feels it would improve things for Oshkosh Truck by moving jobs to one building. The City will be holding a workshop about the Lakeshore proposal tonight at 5 p.m. at the Oshkosh Convention Center, and a second public input session at the center Thursday night from 6 to 8 p.m. There will be an opportunity to comment on draft concept plans during the two sessions.
