Gays Mills will move north of its current boundaries


Gays Mills, WI (WXOW)- Gays Mills residents have weathered the storm three times in the last 30 years.

Now, they're faced with questions about what's next.

The plan to move Gays Mills is official.

Residents can choose to move on a voluntary basis.

If the residents of Gays Mills do nothing, they risk more flooding and potentially loss of homes and businesses, but the thought of relocating the village has many concerned, while others embrace the idea.

The city bought land to move the village, just north of its current boundaries.

The land costs over $400,000 dollars.

It will be used to build a residential and business district.

The city hopes to eventually buy additional property for municipal buildings.

The entire project is estimated to cost about $6 million dollars.

The funding will come from state, federal and USDA funds.
