During 2018, city had junked vehicle crackdown

A crackdown on junked vehicles is making Antigo a bit more pleasant for residents, businesses and visitors.

In his annual report, Roger Musolff, the city building inspectors and zoning administrator, said that over 200 junk vehicles have been removed from private properties through a city crackdown on junk.

And that's not all. Over the last year, 11 houses have been razed due to fire damage, blight and “owner's choice,” Musolff said.

The report caps a relatively light year on the residential front.

“We have several small projects in progress,” Musolff said. “Bathroom remodeling, and kitchen remodeling are the most common projects underway.”

Nine new homes were constructed during 2018, he said. They are located on Andrea Court, East Towne Drive, Mayfair Road, East Ninth Avenue, Field Street, and Whispering Pine along with two duplexes on Center Street.

The commercial front is stirring a bit.

“Several downtown buildings have new businesses started with minimal remodeling done,” he said, with work also underway in the former Java Junction, which is being remodeled for first floor retail space and second floor apartments; and 729 Fifth Ave., which is being remodeled for business on first floor and apartments upstairs.

Down the street, the new Game One entertainment venue is being carved out of the old Edison Club.

Other projects include the county highway department truck shop and the extensive remodeling underway to re-invent the former Refuge Restaurant and Luigi's Pizza and Pasta.
