Hotel Retlaw Grant Request On City Council Agenda

Owners of the Hotel Retlaw are asking the City of Fond du Lac for some help in their $14 million renovation of the historic hotel. Tonight the City Council will consider approving a request to submit an application for a Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Community Development Investment Grant. Community Development Director Dyann Benson says the $250,000 grant would help support the project. Meanwhile the hotel owners recently learned the project is eligible for historic tax credits, which was one of the keys to the project.  The Council meets at 6 p.m. at the City-County Government Center.
