Marshfield, Wis. (WAOW) -- Nikolai Construction is “backing the blue” with banners across its headquarters on 29th Street in Marshfield.
The idea came to mind over a year ago, and to fruition yesterday. The project was a joint effort from owner Don Nikolai and his staff.
“We were sitting in the board room one night after talking business, and we just got upset about all the stories of defunding the police and I basically had enough," said Nikolai construction general manager Brad Larson. "This would be a good way to show everybody in the community how we feel and it’s been great.”
They say they felt a close knit community like Marshfield would appreciate the display of support.
Wood County Sheriff Becker and other officers showed up to give thanks, and snap a picture outside. Bringing a four legged officer along with them.
The community appears to approve. Many cars have stopped to snap a picture.
Right now the business says they haven't had any negative feedback about the sign.
