Village OKs job fair for Kwik Trip

People interested in working for Belgium’s newest business may come to Village Hall the next five Mondays.

The Village Board this month agreed to allow Kwik Trip to hold job fairs on Jan. 30, Feb. 6, 13, 20 and 27.

Only nonprofit organizations are allowed to rent space at Village Hall, per village rules, but the board made an exception in this case.

“I for one think Kwik Trip coming to the village is a huge get. Anything that we can do to make that process easier for them, I don’t see any problem with it,” Trustee Rose Sauers said.

The board originally chose not to allow private parties to rent Village Hall, so nonprofits only were listed in the agreement, Treasurer Vickie Boehnlein said.

But, she said, this situation is something that benefits the village. Kwik Trip wants to hire 50 people, which would make it one of the biggest employers in the village.

“And it’s during business hours so it’s not like somebody has to come here and unlock (the hall),” Village Clerk Julie Lesar said.

These kinds of approvals can be done on an as-needed basis, Boehnlein said.

Kwik Trip bought How-Dea Service Center and plans to raze the building before putting up its building and pumps.
