City council to discuss sale of the Duffek complex at Wednesday meeting
space
A long-standing Antigo business is being sold, and that will require some paperwork by the Antigo Common Council on Wednesday.

The council will convene at 6 p.m. in the chambers at City Hall.

Leading the agenda will be several resolutions relating to the sale of Duffek Sand & Gravel to Northeast Asphalt Inc.

The city is involved in the transaction because it assisted Duffek with its move from the center of the community, in the 900 block of Hickory Street, to its current location on the far northwest side off the Highway 64 bypass.

The city and Duffek entered into a low-interest lease agreement in 2008 to assist with on-site building projects. Duffek is now selling its buildings and property, along with an additional 19.1 acres north of the property.

According to the resolution, Duffek is responsible for payment in full to the city of the remaining loan balance of $1.094 million. The resolution states that the city will grant the sale of the premises in an as-is condition subject to payment in full of the loan balance.

In another industrial matter, aldermen will be asked to revise the lease agreement for Antigo Neon, LLC, currently doing business as Antigo Sign & Display, at 1412 Deleglise St.

The city and Antigo Neon entered into a lease agreement structuring a 20-year loan in 2014. The company is asking to renegotiate the terms to extend the length of the lease. Outstanding principal balance owed to the city totals $572,021.

A related resolution will transfer 4.25 acres of industrial zoned property back to the city for future development in exchange for a payment in lieu of taxes of $27,624. That money represents past due payments inherited by the company from its previous owner, Fallon Neon.

In other matters aldermen are expected to move forward with plans to replace the membrane roofing system at the City Hall and Fire Department.

The roof dates to the building’s construction in 1994. It will be replaced with a heavier gauge membrane secured to the underlying insulation without the use of ballast stone along with a molded walkway to provide access to rooftop mechanical systems.

Low bidder was Nasi Roofing LLC for $101,800. Funds will be taken from the city’s capital improvement account.

The meeting will open with the presentation of the 2017 financial statement by David Maccoux of Schenck Government and Not-For-Profit Solutions.

Aldermen will also:

—write off a Block Grant loan for $14,000 for 420 Elm St. due to a sheriff’s sale.

—act on a conditional use permit for Robert and Pamela Frei to operate a winery with wine and mead production and tastings, along with retail sales, at the east side of the downtown retail building at 715 Fifth Ave.

—and accept the $16,860 bid from Krueger & Steinfest Inc. for demolition of a house at 218 Virginia St. The home was deemed uninhabitable following a Feb. 5 fire. Langlade County had taken ownership by tax deed and transferred it to the city.
