HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- After almost a year-and-a-half of being inoperable, the city of Holland’s icon will receive some much needed repair. The DeZwaan Windmill is expected to be up and running by December 31st as long as the weather cooperates. Needed materials have arrived from the Netherlands and two workmen from Verbij Windmill Design and Construction are in town and ready to get to work. The estimated cost of repairs is a bit over 750-thousand dollars. At last week’s City Council meeting, Mayor Kurt Dykstra and City Manager Ryan Cotton announced that fundraising efforts are a bit short but that work would get underway on September 3rd.
