GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The State Building Commission has signed off on a $2 million grant to cover costs of the expansion at the KI Convention Center in downtown Green Bay.
A bulk of the $20 expansion project is being paid for by Brown County hotel room tax revenue.
The city signed a new $2 million naming rights deal with Krueger International last week and is also using $1 million city reserves plus other financing.
The $2 million grant was included in Governor Walker’s budget earlier this year. The expansion is expected to break ground in November after the city finalizes bonding for the project.
