Egg Harbor Decides to Raze Building

It appears that the wrecking ball will soon be visiting a building acquired in March by the Village of Egg Harbor. The more than 75 year old structure at 7740 Highway 42, which has had many incarnations over the years, including the most recent “Jersey Shore Pub,” was the subject of a request from the Egg Harbor Historical Society that an evaluation be done to determine if the building could be saved. However, the village board voted four to one on Monday to pay $13,000 to Polich Excavating & Plumbing of Egg Harbor to raze the structure. In its place, a new facility is planned to house an expanded library, space for the historical society & to provide a meeting place for residents & visitors. During the meeting Monday, a consultant from McMahon & Associates of Neenah said the majority of the building was not salvageable. Comments for & against saving the building were also presented before the village board voted. The building was purchased by the village at a cost of $350,000.
