Baileys Harbor Approves Purchase of Property Downtown

At the town’s annual meeting April 16, Baileys Harbor voters approved the purchase of the lot at 8149 Highway 57. The vote was 81 in favor and 10 against to spend $150,000 on the property. There are several options for the former Darlene’s Beauty Parlor property, including parking, a park and residential. Tim Tishler, chair of the Fire Building Committee, discussed preliminary plans for two locations – the current location on Park Road and town property on Summit Road – and he highlighted the deficiencies of the current station. There was also discussion about extending sidewalks along County F and expanding sewer service to Beantown Campground.
