SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The new Mid Lakes Softball Association is one step closer to taking over the softball program in the city of Sheboygan. The Public Works Committee met this week and approved a one-year contract with the group. Public Works Director Dave Biebel said the agreement will now go to the city council for final action on Monday. The city last week terminated its contract with the Sheboygan Softball Association for a number of reasons, including failing to contribute money toward improving softball facilities and improper management. Biebel says the agreement with Mid Lakes is similar to the old one but contains more checks and balances in terms of future funding for the facilities and spells out more clearly who is responsible for what.
