The state Assembly has approved giving more time to the Village of Mount Pleasant to build a new fire station near the Wisconn Valley Technology Park using tax funds to be generated by Foxconn. Under the initial state bill, passed in 2017, Mount Pleasant would have had until 2024 to build a new fire station either within the Foxconn zone or within 1 mile of the zone, according to Claude Lois, the village’s contracted project director for the Foxconn development. If the requested extension is approved by the state Legislature, the fire station won’t have to be built until 2032. Scott Kelly, chief of staff for state Sen. Van Wanggaard, R-Racine, said that the bill “will likely pass” the Senate in March.
