The new Stratton Library and Village Office building is planned to began construction this fall. Please stay tuned for updates for ground breaking and events during the process working up to the doors opening!


August 27, 2019

The budget on the new building is set at a total cost of $576,773. This amount includes the building sitework, architectural fees, administration and construction management fees as well as the substructure, shell, interiors and services to the building. A CDBG grant was awarded in the amount of $385,000 for the Library. The Village applied for and was generously awarded $85,000 from the Hansen Charitable Foundation for the matching funds for the CDBG grant. We are in the process of applying for more grants and planning fundraising events for the remaining balance for the Village Office. The total needed to date is $106,773. 

The old shop building that was located at the proposed site has been removed and the ground is being prepped and tested for construction of the new building. Design plans have been finalized and details are being discussed for interior styles.

September 16, 2019

Final design has been approved by the Village Board. Bids will be accepted soon and opened at the October Board meeting.

A fundraiser has been planned for October 26th from 3-5pm (the same night of the Recreation Club Soup supper and Haunted House). Keep an eye out for information around town for the Kiss a Pig Contest or come to the office to support the "winner". There will also be a chance to play Cow Patty Bingo. Pick your favorite book title for your chance on the bingo board. Kids of all ages can have their face painted, bob for apples, cake walk or take a ride in the bucket truck. Floor plans will be on display. Come have a good time and a scare at all the festivities for the day!

The fundraiser was a successes! There was $871.34 raised for this event and lots of fun had by many. Roemello Grier was the lucky winner of the Kiss the Pig contest and despite the cow not wanting to participate we had a winner of Brad Forch for the Cow Patty Bingo. Many kids came and enjoyed rides, games and treats. Thank you for supporting us and we look forward to planning more fun events in the future.

After many planning sessions and options being considered the floor plans have been altered to cut back on expenses for the new building. Advertisements for bids will be out in the near future and bids will be opened in February. We are getting closer to seeing our goal become a reality! Keep your eye out for fundraising events and more information on the building.
