NASHOTAH — A request to approve the zoning permit and plan of operation for Skipper-Bud’s, presented at the Nashotah Plan Commission meeting held Wednesday, was approved.

SkipperBud’s, a boat repair and sale company, bought the former Lake Country Christian Academy after it had been for sale for more than a year.

Nashotah Village President Rich Lartz previously told The Freeman he believes it’s a good deal.

“SkipperBud’s operates a lot of marinas and storage units,” Lartz said. “They appear to do a great job at their other business locations, so I expect they’ll be good for Nashotah.”

He said the business will add to the tax base and provide more income to the village with minimal services required.

Lartz said SkipperBud’s has no intention of taking down the former school building, which had been standing for over 100 years.
