A new storage building for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will be put up on Ellsworth's northwest side.

The 40-by-80-foot unheated building is to be built in a small ravine near the Pierce County Highway Department shop, according to DNR Construction Representative Chris Rehlinger of Madison.


"It's for law enforcement, so it will be used by conservation wardens," Rehlinger said Thursday.
