07.21.14 | Newsmakers: Village of Brokaw Reels from Mill Closing

Before the Village of Brokaw formed in 1903, a paper mill flourished along the Wisconsin River and provided jobs. Over the last century, Brokaw was a company town; in 1948, the mill’s owners sold homes to local residents. But, when the mill closed in 2012, ending more than 400 jobs, the village lost 34% of its tax  base. That leaves the village, with about 250 residents, facing debts of more than $4 million. In an interview with village attorney Dean Dietrich, WisconsinEye discussed whether Brokaw could be the first municipality in Wisconsin history to formally dissolve because of its debts.
