Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Mael property, Portage, Wisconsin
City likely to demolish old plastics building

The city is likely to demolish an old plastics building near the 
municipal airport this summer on what was known as the Mael property, 
City Administrator Larry Plaster said Monday.

With the help of a $55,000 federal brownfield grant, distributed by the 
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Plaster said the city will 
remove the building located at 1125 Silver Lake Drive and the asbestos 
it is said to be contaiminated with in order to sell the property.

"Utimately the goal is for redevelopment," Plaster said following a 
Finance and Administration Committee meeting on Monday. "The airport is 
right there and the city is still in the process of looking to move 
that, not that they need to go hand in hand ... so it has some 
redevelopment value for the city."


The city had sued the Maels over perchloroethylene contamination in the 
city's adjacent Well 6, allegedly stemming from the Silver Lake Drive 
property. According to court documents, previous business operations on 
the land caused the contamination.
