A brand new home for Black River Falls Municipal Utility staff is set to be built over the coming months. This greatly needed building had its official groundbreaking on Friday, March 12. Located at 349 South McKinley Street, the project is estimated to be complete this December.
The 22,000 square foot Operations Center will provide a consolidated location for parts inventory, vehicle storage (which the Utility has been without for more than 10 years), all utility staff operations, and an outdoor storage yard. The old "office," which is part of the Hydro production facility, will remain but will be utilized as overflow storage space. Miron Construction is the General Construction Manager of the project and has set up a live online construction camera for anyone who wants to check out the progress of the project along the way.
