County approves purchase of bar to expand landfill

The Country Corners Bar at 3737 Highway AB in Cottage Grove will be sold to Dane County to expand the neighboring landfill, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report.

The sale, which was approved by the Dane County Board, includes the one acre of land the bar has occupied for nearly 30 years. The bar owner approached the Dane County Department of Waste and Renewables when she was ready to retire.
