Offer made on former WPS building

An area businessman has made an offer to buy the former Wisconsin Public Service building in downtown Rhinelander.

Michael Boyd, of Boyd Financial Services, in Rhinelander, said Monday that he sent a proposal to Oneida County officials over the weekend to purchase the county-owned property.

In an interview, Boyd declined to discuss precise details of his offer, but he did say that it contains three options for what the transaction could look like.

The county’s land records committee is scheduled to discuss the offer in a closed-door meeting on Tuesday.

Boyd first publicly expressed interest in the property in December. At the time, he said the viability of a deal would depend on the county leasing part of the building to house offices for the county’s UW-Extension and land and qater conservation staffs, which at present are located in the basement of the Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport.

Leaders of those departments have said the airport location is small, awkwardly designed, and difficult for the public to find. They said last year that they would be interested in moving into the former WPS office – a 9,100 square-foot building less than a block away from the county courthouse in downtown Rhinelander. 

The Lakeland Times will have more on this story in the Friday, Jan. 17, print and online editions.
