PORTAGE, WI – On Monday, April 15, 2013, Town of Vienna community members and supporters gathered at the future home of its new Town Hall/Shop project for a groundbreaking ceremony.

“Well before GEC became involved with the Town Hall project, community members and Town Officials had already been planning a project. However, the original project couldn’t make it past the planning phase. Assisting the town in clearing the hurdle and seeing the project come to fruition was an extremely rewarding process for the Town and GEC,” says Jason Jackson, GEC Project Coordinator.

When completed, the new 7,655 square foot facility will include meeting rooms, staff offices, fire rated file storage, storage mezzanine, kitchen and breakroom, restrooms, and multiple equipment bays. The new home of the Town Hall/Shop will be located at its current address of 7161 County Highway I, in the Town of Vienna/DeForest. Construction began at the end of April and a completion date is set for November 2013.
