SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The Sheboygan City Council refused Monday night to extend the lease for the Little Red Schoolhouse on Huron Avenue. Rev. Jerry Link, of the River of Life Outreach Ministries, had held the lease for a dollar a year for the past four years in an effort to develop it into a community center. Link appeared before the council Monday night and said they have been making progress and have obtained substantial community support, but have not been able to secure the financing they need. He requested more time by moving the matter to committee. But the council voted 9 to 3 to terminate the lease. Mayor Mike Vandersteen said the council decided that a new approach for the building is needed. One option not being consider is demolition due to the historic value of it.
