In a room full of Green Lake City Council and community members, questions were asked and answers demanded regarding the Heidel House Resort & Spa.

   However, the Green Lake City Council had only a few words to spare during the council’s Monday night meeting regarding the resort’s May 20 closing.

   Council members were first addressed at the meeting by Green Lake resident Larry McIntyre. McIntyre and his wife are licensed Uber drivers.

   According to McIntyre, the taxi service “is less than to be desired in the area ... so we’ve supplied a service. My biggest account by far is Heidel House and without Heidel House, I’m going to have to relocate or retire for the fourth time.”

   With the resort closing, McIntyre noted he was worried about the TIF (tax increment financing) created for Heidel House and its properties.

   He wondered what the state of the TIF was and whether it was being paid.
