Dec. 5, 2016 – West Bend, WI – The downtown West Bend BID Board will move into closed session at its meeting Tuesday, Dec. 6 to discuss the status of the downtown West Bend Theatre and the bridge behind it that runs over the Milwaukee River.

Tuesday’s BID meeting gets underway at 8:15 a.m. in the council chambers at City Hall.
