MENOMONEE FALLS —
During the Village Board meeting Monday, village
officials agreed to provide funding to E.R. Wagner for
its future construction on Old Orchard Road.
Village Manager Mark
Fitzgerald said the Village Board approved two payments
of a maximum of $300,000 each or up to $600,000 total to
reimburse the Milwaukee company for its work on the
site. The reimbursement money will go toward E.R.
Wagner’s foundation and footing construction and site
work at W130-N8691 Old Orchard Road. Once the work is
done, the company will be reimbursed, he said. As part
of the contract, E.R. Wagner must have the work done by
the start of June 2017.
While the building
site is in a tax incremental financing district,
Fitzgerald said the site lacks improvements.
E.R. Wagner intends
to move its manufacturing facility from Milwaukee to
Menomonee Falls. The company plans to purchase the land
and construct a 157,000-square-foot facility for the
manufacture of stamped, machined, and wrapped
assemblies. It addition, E.R. Wagner will acquire and
install equipment at the facility.
