In all, about $5 million in upgrades will be needed for the project, including an expansion of the municipal electrical facilities, Stokes said.
The village planning committee and board approved the plan in concept Monday night but will have to vote again June 3, after notifying surrounding property owners.
Gary Harrop, Peoples Community Bank president and chairman of the Mazomanie Community Development Corp., also has been a strong supporter, said Jeff Valek, who will be plant manager. He said jobs will be available for local residents as well as for high-tech employees.
With the rebuilding of Mazomanie's historic downtown, the new jobs are coming at just the right time, Stokes said. "Mazomanie is a jumping place now," he said.
