PORTAGE, Wis. (June 19)—K-Sil Inc. is waiting for approval from the Wisconsin Corps of Engineers to proceed with proposed plans to almost triple the size of the company´s manufacturing facility to 16,000 square feet from 6,000 square feet on its 11-acre site. It´s been a year since K-Sil President Gene Kyburz unveiled the expansion plans after the business was removed from the Wisconsin River flood plain. However, shortly before it moved ahead with its project, it learned it was in the Fox River flood plain, and Kyburz was instructed by government officials to put a halt to those plans for the time being because, like the Wisconsin River, the Fox River was going to be rebuilt. "Since then, the Wisconsin Corps of Engineers hasn´t OK´d our expansion, and I don´t know at what level I have to build. Until I get approval, I have to wait."
