Council expected to give quick approval
to land sale for Kwik Trip construction

(Saturday - September 04, 2021 - 09:14) - The Iron Mountain City Council will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, relating to the sale of City-owned land to Kwik Trip, for construction of a convenience store/gas station. While the hearing is required, to afford an opportunity for objections, it is not likely that any possible objections would cause the Council the refuse the sale. The action to proceed with the sale will follow the public hearing.

The land in question is 2.85 acres of City-owned property, located at the site of the former Khoury Brothers Furniture manufacturing plant.

While construction could and likely will begin earlier, the proposed land sale agreement requires that construction begin no later than October of 2023.

Kwik Trip is a chain of convenience stores founded in 1965 with locations throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota under the name Kwik Trip, and in Iowa and Illinois under the name Kwik Star. The company also operates stores under the name Tobacco Outlet Plus, Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery, Hearty Platter, and Stop-N-Go. The company is headquartered in LaCrosse, Wisconsin

Due to the Labor Day holiday, the City Council meeting, which is normally held on Monday, will be held at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, in the City Hall Council chambers.
