A message from Assistant Chief Kleiman:

All,

I am pleased to announce that the Kewaunee Farm Tech Grant Committee has agreed to fund a couple of projects that we have been working on.

Kewaunee K-9 Program - $2,500 was granted to our K-9 program to replenish funds that were used to purchase our current K-9 squad.

Kewaunee Fire Department Special Utility Trailer - $5,000 was granted to be used towards the purchase of a Special Use Utility Trailer for the Kewaunee Fire Department. The trailer would house many items that would be used in certain situations. Some of the items that the trailer would house is: Heavy Duty Cribbing, Foam, Dike Material, Oil Dry, Wheelbarrow, Grain Bin Rescue Equipment and items to board up a fire scene; to name a few.

I want to thank the Kewaunee Farm Tech Grant Committee for assisting the City of Kewaunee in these Projects.

Sincerely,

James J. Kleiman Jr.

FYI to all fisherman.

Attention fishermen who intend on using the Kewaunee Public Boat Launch: The Kewaunee Public Works department pulled the ramps about 8 - 10 feet up into the parking lot in order to keep them from becoming damaged by the high water. They are usable, but please use caution. Hopefully a west wind will help us out for the weekend. Thank you to the Public Works department for putting in the effort to help fight Mother Nature. Please share this, as social media and word of mouth are the best ways to spread the word.
