Mid-Wisconsin Buses To Close In Early June; Malliette Vows To Help Laid Off Workers

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development has been notified Mid-Wisconsin Buses in Antigo will be permanently closing its facility on Forrest Avenue.

In a news release, DWD stated they've been notified 28 people will lose their jobs the beginning of June.

Mid-Wisconsin and Malliette Bus Company previously shared contracts with the Antigo School District. Mid-Wisconsin lost a bid to continue the contract this past winter, after the district decided to downsize in order to cut costs.

The company will close on, or around June 5th.

Malliette has vowed to help those who are set to lose their jobs. Tim Grosskurth, owner of Malliette, says they have reached out to 20 drivers, notifying them they would have employment at the beginning of the school year if they desire it.
