The city of Monona is moving forward with a hotel/motel feasibility study. The council, at its Feb. 6 meeting, unanimously approved utilizing Hotel R&D, LLC, to conduct the study.
The first phase of the study will cost $1,500, said city administrator Dan Canton. If the results seem promising, the second phase of the study could proceed, at an additional cost of $1,500. If the results are not favorable, it would not continue.
The city will bear no cost for the first phase. It will be completely covered by $500 contributions from Black Hills Energy, ITC and, most recently, Alliant Energy.
