SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The City of Sheboygan and Benjamin Moore paints held a special event Wednesday to recognize the city’s involvement with the “Main Street Matters” promotion. The city was one of 20 selected to have 28 buildings on the 500 and 800 blocks of North 8th Street get new paint jobs. A Benjamin Moore representative said work has been underway since May and should be complete by the end of next week.
Mayor Mike Vandersteen said the city, building owners and businesses have cooperated to accommodate the work, which went beyond what was expected. He pointed to the fact that the plan was to include 250 hours of work on store frontage areas. In reality, that took over 600 hours to complete.
The event also had live music, free cake, and special sales at downtown businesses during the afternoon.
