Lease Agreement For UW FDL Student Housing Approved

The Fond du Lac County Board Tuesday night approved a lease agreement for student housing at the UW-Fond du Lac. Supervisor John Zorn thought the County would only receive $500 a year for the lease agreement because the developer would only be using a half-acre, but Director of Administration Erin Gerred said the County would be receiving $1,000 for a full acre. Supervisor Sam Kaufman, a lawyer by trade, complimented Corporation Counsel Meggin McNamara on the drafting of the agreement. The Board passed the resolution by a 22 to 1 vote with Supervisor Zorn opposed. The 122-bed student housing facility at the UW-Fond du Lac should be ready for the Fall 2017 semester.
