At the request of the Mayor a public forum will take place tonight in anticipation of an agreement being reached between the two sides arguing over a possible expansion of the West Bend Downtown Farmers market. Several downtown businesses oppose it because it would block their store fronts, while many others are in favor of the expansion because right now due to lack of space they are turning away quality vendors. Kellie Boone, Event Manager for the Down Town Business Association says despite 14 businesses being opposed to the expansion, just as many feel it needs to expand and remain in the downtown area for a variety of reasons. West Bend Mayor Kraig Sadownikow says despite differing opinions, everyone agrees that Farmer’s Market is an asset to the city. Tonight’s forum will be hosted by representatives of the West Bend Economic Development Corporation. The meeting is open to anyone. It will be conducted from six thirty until eight at UWWC in room 305. The UWWC campus is located at 400 University drive in West Bend.
