Electricity to the docks at the Regal Marina in Prairie du Chien has been disconnected. Depending on when electrical is brought up to state standards, it is unknown when power will resume.
On May 1, the city was directed to cut power to docks A, B, C and D as well as the gas dock because several state electrical code violations were uncovered by state inspectors Anthony Tadysac and Char Martin, according to City Administrator Aaron Kramer.
“The conditions are so dangerous, the city simply had to do something to assure safety,” City Attorney Lara Czajkowski Higgins said. “[The Regals] have to complete the repairs in order for the electricity to be turned back on.”
The Courier Press has made numerous attempts, since May 3, in person and by phone, to reach Dennis Regal Sr., president of Regal Marine Group, which leases the marina from the city. However, all have gone unanswered.
