A small parcel of vacant property located at South Seventh Avenue and Walnut Street just south of the West Bend Community Memorial Library could soon become a municipal park. Earlier this week the West Bend Library Board reached an agreement to pay up to $50,000 for a local consultant to help it raise contributions to complete the planned Patrons Park on the city library’s grounds and to start an endowment fund. The board voted 7-0 to a contract with Joan Rud-nitz-key of Rudnitzki & Associates, for up to 500 hours of fundraising work. Rudnitzki was one of two consultants interviewed for the assignment earlier this month. Rudnitzski is a former development director for the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend. A month ago, the board accepted the low bid of $306,500 from Blaze Landscape Contracting in Menomonee Falls, to start construction on the quarter-acre park, which will begin when weather permits. About two-thirds of the park, which has an estimated cost of $600,000, will be completed by Blaze. Last year, the Library Board allocated $390,000 from its undesignated donated funds account for the project.
