OSHKOSH, Wis. (WLUK) — Million-dollar housing for violent sex offenders could be coming to Oshkosh.
The plan was introduced earlier this week.
“It keeps us from having those uncomfortable conversations in the community that we shouldn’t have to have,” said Winnebago County Executive Jon Doemel.
He’s trying to solve a years-long problem: a place to house violent sex offenders after their sentence is complete.
“There’s no great solution that everybody likes but I think it’s the best solution for a really hard situation,” he offered.
The Winnebago County executive talked on a plan introduced Tuesday night. It’s a proposal for the county to build apartment units in a rural area of Oshkosh.
