Online Auction Could Produce A Buyer For The Retlaw Hotel

The president of the Fond du Lac Economic Development Corporation says they have at least one interested developer for the Retlaw Hotel. Steve Jenkins says an online auction will be held June 27th through the 29th. He says unlike the first online auction this one is more likely to produce a buyer for the hotel. He says one developer has been working with them along with the City and Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership. He says if that developer is the winning bidder in the auction there could be some big changes in the downtown. He says it would fundamentally change the downtown and make it center of activity and the social center of the community once again. A hearing is scheduled before Fond du Lac County Judge Richard Nuss on Wednesday, July 6th during which the judge could approve a buyer for the historic hotel.
